Iranian workers go on strike over back pay

The workers have not received their salaries for the past three months. They have complained that despite a deadline by the Ministry of Labour for the management to buy factory-safe-shoes and aprons three months ago, these items have still not been provided to them.

Nurses Union threatens mass protests
Tehran – The head of Iran’s Nurses Union yesterday said that they had exhausted every avenue available to them for their demands to heard, with no avail. “The only way nurses can make their voices heard is through demonstrations”, Mohammad Sharifi-Moqadam stated. He added that authorities have repeatedly blocked requests for ‘peaceful protests’ by Iran’s nurses.
