months of non-payment
About 550 employees of a once successful Qatari company – Imperial Trading and Contracting Company (ITCC) – have
been protesting non-payment of wages for over 11 months, which has pushed them and their families back home to
destitution. The employees have been taking to the road outside the company’s headquarters in the Madinat Khalifa
area of Doha, with nearly two dozen of them sleeping outside the o ces. The works are primarily from India, Nepal,
Bangladesh and Egypt, and have worked for between ve and 13 years with ITCC, which is part of the SASCO group of
companies.
