Iranian workers go unpaid for months

This week, the workers at the giant Haft Tapeh sugar cane plantation and mill complex in Shush, Khuzestan Province in Western Iran, took a series of industrial actions in protest against not being paid for over four months. The workers at Haft Tapeh have a long and proud history of militant resistance. These workers and families are in desperate conditions and need your support. An international solidarity campaign has been initiated. The Canadian Union of Public Employees has also put out an international call for the Iranian government to stop the repression against labour activists.
