The ITF observed with great concern the continuous violations of union rights in Bahrain Airport Services (BAS) union and procrastination with the union president Yousef Al Khaja to reinstate him, especially after the official authorities represented by the Ministry of Labor and the company’s management affirmed the required administrative procedures to reinstate the union president. The ITF strongly refuses BAS management’s continuous violations of trade union rights against BAS union and its president, through the closure of the union’s headquarters, not deducting the union subscription fees, the abolition of trade union representation in the Joint Committee for saving, and the procrastination in periodic collective bargaining meetings in order to undermine social dialogue and to end trade union action in the company. The ITF strongly condemns these arbitrary actions in violation of the rights and freedoms of association ,collective bargaining and the protection of trade unionists taken by BAS management ,the ITF calls on BAS company to stop all these violations of trade union rights and affirms conviction of all these administrative procedures which don’t comply with the modern work behaviors that have established a true partnership between trade unions and companies’ managements to ensure stability and productivity, the ITF calls on BAS management to refrain from such actions and reinstate Yousef Al Khaja, it also calls for respect of BAS workers' union right in social dialogue and collective bargaining based on all CBAs held between the union and management of the company and pledges to reinstate the union’s president. The ITF calls on the Government of the Kingdom of Bahrain to intervene resolutely to stop the deliberate procrastination by the company’s management in the reinstatement of Yousef Al-Khaja, especially after the Ministry of Labor affirmed that his dismissal was arbitrary and that it will work hard with the company’s management on the reinstatement procedures. The ITF also calls on the government to respect the agreements concluded between the union and the management, to work reopen the union’s headquarters, and to respect union rights and collective bargaining, as stated in the trade Unions Act No. 33 of 2002, the Labor Law No. (36) For the year 2012 in the Kingdom of Bahrain, and the ILO standards
