I personally doubt that spending money they don't have on a lawyer to find a company that is owned by the Sheikah is not a very good idea. But hey that's just me. I prepared for this possibility my first month here so I'm hardly worried about it.

Like I said this stuff is busy. AMMROC has lawyers working for them that make it so that they always win. If you feel that people should spend the little bit of severance pay to try and get back a little bit more that they have no assurance that they will get I would suggest you take it to PM. Not here in a PUBLIC FORUM.
When you can show that 196 are being laid off and no locals are in this, it is blatant discrimination. This is what is being done. The guys in with the DOL have a copy of the list. The DOL no matter the nationality is very hard on discrimination. What you need to do is get in touch with the guys that are getting ready to go to their 3rd day of court tomorrow and do the same. I'm not here to lead you by the hand just point you in the right direction which is what I have done.

As far is my contract goes, it doesn't matter. If what I am telling you is coming right from another AMMROC employee that is in court (he's an F-16 tire and wheel guy which is all I'll say) and is based on my experience, I think it's worth your time. If you don't feel that way, so be it. Best of luck no matter what you chose.

Are you aware that the company and all companies operating in the UAE are OBLIGATED by law to have a certain percentage of local nationals working for them? How can you say it was discrimination when there were Americans, and Filipinos, and Jordanians, and Pakistanis, and so on all on the list? They were all given a reason for being let go. Like I said before it isn't personal, it's business. If you don't understand the nature of business then so be it. You can waste your time and money fighting over few measly little coins. I don't remember asking you to hold my hand, you don't sound like my type. And as I said before the types of things you are telling people to do sound more like PM material and not something that should be public record where AMMROC and the UAE government can read. Which I can assure you they do.

I am aware and that number is 40%. What makes it discrimination is that not one local was let go. That reason was redundancy. That's not a reason and it's not business. It's discrimination which is why the Jordanians and one American that decided to pursue it are going to get what is coming to them. This is general information. Not one name was mentioned and it is to open peoples eyes. Personally, I don't care what AMMROC and the UAE read. Most of us on here are smart enough not to tie a name handle. Bottom line is that if you don't like the info that I have to offer, you can ignore it. Everything that I have posted is legit and accurate. Once again, if you don't like it, don't read it.

Redundancy and failing the English test and not having a 7-level are also reasons given. I could care less what you decide to put on this forum. Because it's a forum but what I do think is silly is put all your information in a place that they can see it. It's not about me liking it, it about helping people. And I know they will get what's coming to them. Everyone gets what's coming to them, even you.

Here is a news flash for you. I sat in each of the meetings. Not 1, not 3, not 10. Every one of them. Not being a 7 level is not one of them and definitely not being English literate is not another. If there were the case, there are 3 HR at Al Dhafra that would be gone. If you look at the earlier posts you will see that they are nationalities that the locals don't working on specific platforms. Redundancy and low performers like yourself are the reasons people were let go. If people want to talk about this, they can PM me. I would rather not even converse with you period.

If you don't like I'm saying then don't read it. It's funny you say that these weren't the reasons because strangely enough the two Jordanians that were let go in my shop were given those reasons. Huh...you seem to know a lot and yet you don't realize that AMMROC wants certain individuals to stay and we aren't talking about nationalities. But that to is a discuss for off the record.

I don't know why you keep defending them (AMMROC),It is chrystal clear that what they did is awful regardless the reasons behind it. A month or so before the people who got laid off were told- in one of these public meetings- to bring their families and to enroll their kids in schools, also they were told to rest assure that AMMROC needs more people and they will hire more people....AMMROC deceived them people by just saying that.

None knows if it will be your turn next , so be careful of whom you defend

I'm hardly defending. I'm saying it's business. Whether you like it or not. As I stated before they aren't they first and won't be the last. If you knew the cheap wages the people were paid to make the shoes you wear everyday would you stop wearing them? Probably not. And secondly, like I stated earlier...again, I'm prepared for the day that I know longer work for AMMROC so I'm not worried. I already have a plan B and C not to mention in the first month all the bills I had before I came here were paid off. I read this forum and others and knew what I was getting into. Is it unfortunate what has happened? Yes. Was it the company's fault that these people didn't prepare? No.

I'm upset by the actions but I'm not going to let it consume me. All the people taken were from dayshift, which I work so my workload TRIPLED. But I'm not going to complain nor will I if I go to work one day and they tell me I have a lunch to attend at Al Bateen because I know that working for AMMROC wasn't what I was meant to do. Some of us put our faith in a higher power but set ourselves up for greatness. Blaming a company is merely proving that you weren't ready in the first place.

I strongly agree with Igunnz, where ever you work, you have to take care of yourself. In any event happened they shall be reasons behind the scenario. It could be good or not, coz life is just like a wheel, there are time you are up. Really sorry for those who lost thier job, there are better place to be for you out there..
