It seems that the series of layoffs in the Sultanate of Oman by some major companies has begun and will not stop, as days after the “Sohar Steel” crisis, which was only resolved by the practical intervention of the authorities, a new layoff problem appeared today in one of Sohar’s companies.
According to Omani accounts on the communication sites, the workers of the “Oman Ceramics” company in the Sohar Industrial Area were surprised by the decision to dismiss 68 of them, even though they had not received their salaries for 6 months.
Oman Ceramics also laid off 68 employees..!
They are located in Sohar Industrial Area.
The Corona crisis is over, and the layoffs are not over..
Above what they are humiliated for 6 months, they are not given their salaries and are patient..

Ahmed wrote, denouncing this decision via the hashtag: “Yesterday, the layoffs of Sohar Steel workers, and today the layoffs of Oman Ceramics workers.. How long will this farce continue?”
How long will this farce continue?
Every week turn on a company mean?

Families are destroyed and homes disintegrate!
And at the whim of the newcomer, who is enhanced and honorable, and the Prime Time Zone of the country are released!

Muhammad Al-Maamari said: “God suffices me, and he is the best agent. The Oman Ceramics Company believes that the law has played it in its hands. The company produces what is existing in the factory, but this production is produced and sold in the local and foreign market, but under another name, which is Bahwan Building Materials Company.”
Suffice God and yes agent. Oman Ceramics Company believes that the law is a game in its hands. The company produces what is not in the factory, but this production comes out and is sold in the local and foreign market, but under another name, which is Bahwan Company for Building Materials #discharge_of_oman_ceramic_workers

Youssef Makhmari noted that one of the biggest problems facing the theater is the inclusion of his name on the blacklist in the Central Bank.
#dismissal_of_oman_ceramic_workers One of the biggest problems facing the theater is that its name is included in the blacklist in the central bank in the event that it fails to pay the due installments, and this is enough to deprive it of the right to borrow for a house or any other loan.

This is in the event that he fails to pay the due installment, and this will deprive him of the right to borrow a house or any other loan.
Sohar iron layoffs
A few days ago, the General Federation of the Workers of the Sultanate said that a meeting was held at the headquarters of the Ministry of Labor, headed by His Excellency Sheikh, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Labor, and in the presence of the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Sultanate’s Workers’ Union and the owners of Sohar Steel Company to discuss the issue of laying off Sohar Steel workers.
The Sultanate’s Workers’ Union confirmed through a tweet to it, which was monitored by “Watan” at the time, that the meeting resulted in the non-dismissal of workers and their continuation of their work.
It is worth noting that during the past two days, the hashtag_dismissal_Sohar_Steel_Steel spread on Twitter, in which he appealed to a group of workers in Sohar Steel to intervene and stop their layoffs immediately, after the company delivered letters of termination of work to a group of workers.
Social networking sites in the Sultanate of Oman witnessed controversy after Sohar Steel announced its intention to lay off a number of its employees starting next October.
Sohar Steel issued a statement in this regard, which was widely circulated during the past two days, in which it notified a number of its employees of the termination of their services, and they are about 52 workers, including the national workforce.

The management of Sohar Steel justified this decision due to the losses that the company has been experiencing, since the beginning of the Corona pandemic and its impact on production and the company’s profits.
Sohar Steel’s decision sparked a wave of anger among the Omanis, and they launched a tag entitled “#Demobilization of Sohar Steel Workers”, in which they strongly criticized this decision and expressed their full solidarity with the laid-off workers.
The uproar caused a government intervention that resulted in a meeting with company officials, and the dismissal decision was halted.
