Today, August 25th, is 25th day of the nationwide protest and strike of Iran’s oil, petrochemical industry and power plant workers.
Some contractors have now agreed to the workers’ first demand: payment of unpaid wages and a pay rise. The workers’ wages will now be paid on a weekly basis. However, the striking workers have announced that they will not return to work until all their demands are met.
There are currently fifty-five oil, gas and petrochemical production centres on strike in Iran.
