Workers’ rights, can be a dangerous subject

Friday, June 10, 2011

Last week Mansour Ossanlu, the leader of the banned Tehran Bus Drivers’ Union was released from prison where he has been for much of the last four years. Ossanlu was originally arrested after organising protests about wages. His release is a reminder that workers who campaign for better pay or conditions can face less than a kind response from the government. This is certainly the view of the International Trade Union movement, and Amnesty International, which has released a report this week calling for the government to respect the rights of workers. Two of Mansour Ossanlu’s colleagues, Reza Shahabi and Ebrahim Madadi, are still in prison. Workers in other areas, such as teachers or food factories, have also faced severe intimidation for raising the issue of their pay and conditions. Christians in Iran are ordinary members of the work force and like their colleagues need a living wage paid on time, and decent working conditions. Pray for: •Government to deal wisely and justly with labour issues •Rights of workers to be protected •Justice for all those arrested on labour related cases
