Saadiyat workers need more protection: HRW

04 Jun 2011

(MENAFN) Human Rights Watch (HRW), said that even though it was a positive step for the Tourism Development & Investment Company (TDIC) to hire PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) to monitor conditions for workers building the Saadiyat Island cultural project, additional steps must be taken in order to truly protect the rights of workers, reported Arabian Business.

TDIC had hired PwC by the end of May in order to ensure an independent third party is monitoring the conditions of workers.

HRW said that additional required steps include setting publicly-announced penalties for contractors that violate standards, and putting into effect remedies for workers whose rights are violated, including a direct promise to reimburse workers found to have paid recruiting fees.
