JORDAN: Textile Workers Win JD120,000 Payout
The Jordanian Textiles and Weaving Company has been ordered to pay JD120,000 in back salaries to its 79 workers.
"The money will cover outstanding worker salaries for about ten months," said Mohammad Abu Zinah, vice president of the General Union for Workers in the Textile, Garment and Clothing Industries.
Under a new law, workers are given priority over their emplouyer in any financial dispute.
"The union got involved to help workers after the company continued to ignore worker demands by saying there was no money available to pay them," he told the Jordan Times.
