Iran: Petrochemical industry workers protest

Iran: Petrochemical industry workers protestNCRI – Workers at Petrochemical industry in Khorasan province have been on strike for the past four days in protest against their demotion.

The workers in storage, fire brigade, laboratory and protection of machinery sections who hold professional positions have been demoted to mere service workers. This would lower their wages.

The workers claim that they have been working in the industry for some 15 years but yet they are forced to sign monthly working contracts and if they refused they would be fired. The workers have stressed that they would continue with their protests until their demands are met.
