KARAK — Workers at the Karak water department halted work on Monday because the water ministry had not met their demands for better salaries and fringe benefits.

Because of the work stoppage, water pumping to parts of Karak was halted. Workers gathered in front of the main pumping station in Ghweir in east Karak to get their message across.

The workers complained that their salaries and work conditions were not satisfactory.

The department’s director, Nayef Dmour, said the workers demands were legitimate and called on the ministry to meet them and to work to ensure sustainable water provision to citizens.
