The report monitors the conditions of the cleaning workers in the municipalities and the Greater Amman Municipality as they dealt with the crisis. It also identifies the most prominent working conditions and the role of these workers during the current phase that focuses on tackling the emerging Coronavirus in different regions in the central, north, and south of the Kingdom. The report highlights the situation in the areas of the Capital, Al-Dhahil municipality, Azraq municipality, and Mafraq. These conditions were monitored in two phases: the first of which was done during the early stages of the curfew and the second was implemented almost a month after the imposition of Defense Order No. 13 of 1993. 52 workers were interviewed while compiling this report to understand their working conditions. These conditions varied greatly amongst the workers, whether during the crisis or before it, from one region to another depending on the authority these workers are employed for and the nature of their contracts. Generally, workers who are employed based on fixed contracts should receive all of their labor rights based on the Civil Service System. Meanwhile, daily workers earn their wages based on the number of working days they are illegible to any vacations, official or religious holidays. Both categories of workers though are included under the umbrella of social security and receive health insurance.
