|Agforce claims the way leasehold rents are handled in Dubai are problematic, particularly when you consider that all the new hotels have been built, albeit in smaller houses than previous.
"The problem with leasing buildings is it is not always clear what is in the lease," he adds. "Some of these hotels are built in three dimensions and are all one and a half stories, whereas others are in two dimensions and have four stories; it is also not clear what is contained in this lease."
In a bid to solve this issue Mr. Azzam says he is building a six-story skyscraper to accommodate the four stories. The building will be built below the two-story luxury hotel and on site of the three-story hotel.
The development will be built with existing infrastructure and equipment, which means it will meet Dubai's requirements.
Other developers are following suit, including The Green Group, which is now planning a tower near Dubai's commercial center that will include a restaurant, cafes, apartments, a hotel room and a retail plaza.
Glimmer of hope for workers at gujarat coal mine
Johain, May 6: After the coal mine collapse in Gujarat state, an overwhelming number of workers have come out in solidarity to demand a living wage of Rs 1.85 lakh per month, according to a statement by the Gujarat Labour Department. This week, workers of a coal mine in the state were offered Rs 1.8 lakh per month after the state government offered a living wage.
But now that coal mining workers have come out for their living, employers are keenly watching what they do with the money and what the movement looks like in another six to nine months.
Coal miners are being paid more than Rs 1.85 lakh per month on average under the employment contract. But it can be quite difficult to pay them in real terms: their wages are in a variety of denominations, in addition to the salary they are receiving under the Employment Contracts. Under the Employment Contracts, the amount paid is Rs 1.81 lakh, plus the regular wage, plus 1% per fortnight.
As per their contract, the company has to pay an extra 5% to 10% of the regular wage to the unionised coal miners who are eligible for wage payments under the Employment Contracts, though this percentage can be quite high. In fact, the extra amount to be paid varies between coal miners depending on their work.
The union leaders of the coal mine called for an immediate withdrawal of the contract and their demands to be discussed in the next meeting of the coal workers. The workers demanded an immediate withdrawal of the wages as well as all salaries and benefits promised in the Employment Contracts.
Anxious for the meeting, the union leaders said: "It seems that many companies cannot afford to pay basic wages and overtime, so they pay wages of Rs 1.82 lakh per month but offer workers only Rs 1.8 lakh."
The workers claimed that at one site, workers were earning Rs 9,000-12,000 per month on average and the union leaders claim that coal mining companies have not paid them Rs 10,000 in salary and benefits for the past seven months.
However, the state-run company said: "When we go to talks with the workers, we ask the company to pay Rs 10,000 in wages, Rs 500 in overtime and Rs. 6 lakh in allowances, so that they become more active and realise our demands.
At least eight unions have come out in support of the workers' demand to be guaranteed a minimum monthly salary and benefits, such as the regular salary and overtime.
