Over 3000 Workers go on strike in Haft Tapeh!

By Iranian Workers' Solidarity Network
Thursday, 08 May 2008

http://www.marxist.com/iran-strike-haft-tapeh.htm

According to reports received from Iran over 3000 Workers at the
Haft Tapeh Sugar Cane Development Commercial Company are now on
strike.

The strike and protests at Haft Tapeh in Shush city, Khuzestan
province in southern Iran, began yesterday (6 May). At 7am on
Tuesday the Workers in the industrial section of the company
gathered in front of the general manager's office. They later also
prevented Abu-Albasi, the deputy general manager, from entering the
company's premises.

At present all parts of the company are involved in this widespread
strike, including Workers in the offices, in the development
department and the agricultural section. All production and activity
in the company has come to a halt.

The Workers have struck demanding that the past two months' unpaid
wages be paid. Their full demands are as follows:

- Payment of two months' unpaid wages.
- An end to the gathering of legal dossiers and summoning Workers to
court.
- Sacking the general manager of the company, a mollah named Yaghoob
Shafiee, and the whole management committee.
- Sacking the security chief of the company, a person named Zibdari,
who has had a direct role in the beating, spying and gathering of
dossiers on Workers.

At present a number of plain-clothes Intelligence Ministry officers
are near the company. We therefore must keep up the pressure on the
management of this state-owned company and the Iranian government to
accept all the Workers' demands.

Globalisation of production and distribution by employers has brought new problems for trade unionists throughout the world.

International co-operation and solidarity has become totally essential.

This the latest report on the strike. Full text at link.

5000 workers are now on strike at the Haft Tapeh Sugar Company. The strike has entered its sixth day and all three shifts, as well as all parts of the factory and cane fields of the company, are solidly behind the strike. The workers had warned that they would step up strike action if their demands were not met by the management of the state-owned company.

On 10 May many workers protested in front of the Governor General's office in Shush . This protest lasted many hours and a growing numbers of workers kept joining it. After 6 days of strike action the workers have not had any response from management about what is going to happen to their unpaid wages. Neither the general manager, Yaghoob Shafiee, nor anyone from the management committee, nor Zibdari, the company's security chief, have come anywhere near the factory or fields.

The workers full demands are as follows:

* Payment of two months' unpaid wages.
* An end to the gathering of legal dossiers and summoning workers to court.
* Sacking the general manager of the company, a mollah named Yaghoob Shafiee, and the whole management committee.
* Sacking the security chief of the company, a person named Zibdari, who has had a direct role in the beating, spying and gathering of dossiers on workers.

Intelligence Ministry officers have begun harassing workers by phoning or going to their homes in the middle of the night. We therefore must keep up the pressure on the management of this state-owned company and the Iranian government to accept all the workers' demands and to drop all charges against them.
