If you are reading my blog from the very beginning you could notice that my termination process began at the moment when I asked about DVP’s (Divisional Vice President’s) salary at the open forum. DVP of Airport Services at that time was Anoma Manuel (shortly after the incident she was moved to another position) and she rudely answered that her salary is “not my business”. I, on the contrary, felt that my managers’ salary is my business because difference between mine and their salary is a direct measure of how much I (and all the other lower grade staff in Emirates) am exploited in order for managers to have their unjustifiably high salaries.
I did a little research and this is what I have found out: managers’ salaries are unimaginably and unduly higher than salaries of regular staff who are forced to work long hours, forced overtime, who are pressurized, disrespected, humiliated and fired for other people’s mistakes.
So, if Anoma Manuel was honest at the Open forum, she could answer my question like this: “I am receiving around 40,000 AED per month, plus all the frills, plus four times bonus.”
According to my sources an overall package of one DSVP (Divisional Senior Vice President) is around 100.000 AED.
If we, for example, assume that this year’s bonus will be for 9 weeks, EK 4 staff will get around 7000 AED bonus, but one SVP (Senior Vice President) will receive around 490.000 AED.
If we know that one grade EK4 staff has 3500 AED (+1500 AED accommodation allowance) salary, I will leave you to think what these numbers mean.
