The Oman Ministerial Decision No. 294/2006

The Oman Ministerial Decision No. 294/2006, as amended (MD 294/2006)
controls various aspects concerning the relationship between employers
and employees in this country. It sets out the key procedures which must
be adhered to by any workers seeking industrial action for whatever
reasons. The need to participate in a peaceful strike is clearly
emphasized. Employees are allowed to result to a labor strike if they
intend to push for better working conditions. However, the law makes it
quite clear that an employee serving in organizations whose work is to
offer essential public services should not go on strike. The procedure
set out by this amendment requires the labor union to first issue the
employer with a notice of the strike three weeks prior to it. The notice
must be in a written form and should clearly outline the reasons for
asking for the industrial action. The demands the employees are making
ought to be made very clear. The local government authorities and the
Ministry of Labor should also be served with the written notice. To
resolve the strike, the law requires the Ministry of Labor to make
attempts to constitute a committee made up of representatives of the
employees, the employer and the Ministry itself immediately after the
strike notice is served. This committee is supposed to take measures to
address the demands made and endeavor to avert or terminate the strike.
