Protestors resume work at Burj Dubai
Arabtec workers who have refused to work since 1st November have resolved their dispute.
Arabtec has announced that the protest by its workers - which saw them refusing to work for almost two weeks - is now over.
The workers downed tools on 1 November over pay and conditions.
Riad Kamal, the CEO of Arabtec Construction, said that an agreement reached between management and its workforce brought the dispute to an end.
"The desired result has been achieved after several meetings with the officials of the Ministry of Labour, the UAE Contractors Association, the Dubai Police headquarters and the Permanent Committee for Labour Affairs in the Emirate of Dubai."
But Kamal declined to go into detail on what agreement was reached with the workers. "There are too many sensitive issues involved, so it is better that we don't go into too much detail. The important thing is the men are back at work and they are happy."
