Jordan oil workers win massive pay rise

This week saw the 3,600 members of the General Union of Petroleum & Chemical Workers in Jordan win a new collective agreement. The new contract gives workers a 30% pay rise, improvement to the retirement benefits, health and medical services for all workers and their families including pensioners. This surprising result might have been due to the Government’s fear of ongoing instability in the region influencing workers in Jordan and reigniting mass protests like those of a couple of years ago.
