Tuesday March 13, 2018 – 16 factory workers at Iran Kodrow have been suspended by the company management for starting a worker’s council Telegram channel.
The channel is called the “Council Activists”, and was started by some of the factory workers.
The workers were trying to start a council similar to that of another group of factory workers in another plant.
Interestingly, when the channel started to work, in just two weeks it gathered over 3000 members who were mostly workers at the main plant of the company.
This did not come easy for the management who has close relations with ministry of intelligence. Therefore, he had the channel blocked and also suspended 16 workers who seemed to be involved in starting the channel.
