French consulting firm warns against MGRP & PAM merger

Posted on : Monday 21st of May 2018

KUWAIT CITY : The French consulting firm, which is considering the merger of the Manpower and Government Restructuring Program (MGRP) with the Public Authority for Manpower (PAM), has warned of the strain it will put on the state budget, due to the existence of several differences between the two sides, reports Al-Qabas daily.

Sources told the daily the merger between the two sides will cost the state 11 million dinars – 8 million dinars for the adjustment of salaries and another 3 million in the form of bonuses. Sources added the lack of consultation with leaders and managers of the restructuring program and the adoption of the step after the postponement twice were urgent and contrary to the government’s directives. The sources pointed out, the continuation of the merger plan is a destruction of the state development plan and the element of human potential and development.

This is because the country is on the verge of a huge project in the north, which will employ 200,000 Kuwaitis. They will be dispersed in the form of training and preparation in the event of continued integration which in fact encourages citizens to work in the private sector and supports small enterprises.

The sources stressed that the ‘merger’ also violates the economic reform document, which was postponed by the members of the National Assembly, indicating that the merger between the government agencies was within the terms of reference of the document and include 11 bodies, but failed at the level of implementation.

Sources pointed out the merger will collide with reality especially since there are 600 employees who have a cadre while there are 2,500 employees without cadre and many will lose their supervisory positions because of integration.

Sources criticized the merger citing lack of clear policy which will expose the state administrative and other issues related to the payment of benefits and allowances. Moreover, the merger will give rise to strikes and sit-ins, especially it will cause damage to some employees because some will be entitled to promotions which they are not entitled to, in the presence of seniority of personnel.
