Abu Dhabi Labour Tribunal, part of Abu Dhabi Judicial Department (ADJD) – alongside the UAE’s Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (Mohre) and Abu Dhabi General Services Company (Musanada) – have ended a collective labour dispute involving 320 workers in “a record period”, with the court moved to the labour camp, using 'ADJD Mobile Court', to carry out all legal procedures – from filing claims to issuing of judicial decisions on the dues of each worker separately with speedy enforcement, and ensuring the delivery of dues – without the need for workers to approach the seat of the court.

Necessary procedures have also been put in place to transfer the residences of workers to another company, and provide tickets for workers wishing to return home, UAE state news agency, Wam, reported.

Mohre prepared lists of workers wishing to repatriate and those seeking work at other companies, in addition to booking tickets for the former “on the nearest flight”.

Musanada reportedly responded rapidly to enforce the court judgment, which ruled the liquidation of the defendant company’s bank guarantee.

Abu Dhabi Labour Tribunal, in line with the directives of HH Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Presidential Affairs, and Chairman of ADJD, affirmed the importance of speedy adjudication to achieve the strategic priority of the department of fair and efficient justice.

The tribunal added that the UAE was keen to preserve and safeguard the rights of workers and ensure their protection under the rule of law through a judicial system that meets all requirements and ensures the settlement of disputes in a record time.
