Chinese Employees Sent Back

According to the Icelandic Work Institute, work permits for further foreign Impregilo workers will not be issued until at least next week, or until a result is reached at the Ministry of Social Affairs on Impregilo’s wage agreements.

Italian contractors Impregilo have been paying foreign workers less than the Icelandic minimum wages.

Impregilo were expecting 43 Chinese workers tomorrow and nine from Pakistan. These employees had to be turned around upon arriving in Iceland.
