Iranian Workers Go on Strike

NCRI – On Saturday June 2nd more than 5,000 workers of Haft-Tapeh Sugar cane factory in southern province of Khuzistan continued their strike for the 5th straight day.

These workers have not received any wages since March. They said they will gather in other places such as Provincial office and Labor department if they do not receive their salary.

The protesting workers asserted that importing of millions of tons of sugar has caused their product to be preserved in the silos and prevented their retailing and distribution.

Today the workers of Hafte-Tapeh Sugar Cane factory also prevented operation of other departments such as human resources, production and sales.
