State neglection of steelworkers' labor rights raise anger at today's protest
After yesterday’s protest held by National Steel Group’s workers at the governor’s building, today these workers blocked Ahwaz Bridge facing the Helal (crescent) Cinema.
The protesters also went on to block the Ahwaz railway line that heads to Tehran. Workers say their anger is increasing as the government has failed to assign property ownership and production rights that they long require to gain rights of.
One other protest by workers includes the Manizan dairy products employees that have gathered at the governor’s office in West Islam Abad to demand higher working conditions.
