伊朗劳工运动的新进展

作者:Shahla Daneshfar


在过去的3个月内伊朗的工人继续抗议。最低工资、组织权、拖欠工资和裁员等议题是工人斗争和抗议的焦点。

针对政府决定把最低工资定为极低的每月149美元,工人们开始请愿以争取最低工资达到549美元。他们表示本应每月获得至少1220美元,但是现在作为第一步,他们要求涨到$549,最低工资如若低于这一标准就应当被判非法。据我们得到的报导,这件抗议请愿在众多城市都收到了签名,例如德黑兰(Tehran)、卡拉季(Karaj)、达马万德(Damavand)、克尔曼沙阿(Kermanshah)、阿巴丹(Abadan)、伊斯法罕(Isfehan)。仅在卡尚(Kashan)一地就收到了三千名工人的签名。

此外,实为政府部门的“工人议会”被国际劳工组织(ILO)承认为伊朗工人的代表,这引发了工人们的抗议。“自由劳工组织建设行动委员会”要求伊朗工人必须有权自由地组织起来,工人的团体应当被国际上的诸劳工组织承认为伊朗工人的代表。

近期发生的这些聚焦于最低工资和组织权的斗争,使得劳工运动获得了一个全国的性质。

另外,近3个月里我们目睹了一些长期罢工,包括在伊朗北部的 West Alborz 煤矿发生的两个月的罢工;德黑兰附近Filoor的工人罢工并控制了工厂、迫使管理层向工人的要求屈服;目睹了许多集会和罢工纠察线,例如在伊朗北部的Pars纺织厂。在伊朗霍德罗(Iran Khodro)汽车厂,工人用他们的团结一致让被开除的工友们重新回到了岗位。并且,在Babak举行的 Khatoon Abad 屠杀纪念日上,为了表达团结精神,来自多个工厂的工人一同爬上了 Klone Bestack 高地。

New developments in the labour movement

By Shahla Daneshfar  

In the last 3 months workers in Iran have continued their protests. Issues such as the minimum wage, the right to organize, unpaid wages and downsizing of workforce, were the foci of workers’  struggle and protests.  

On the issue of government’s deci-sion to set the minimum wage as low as $149 per month, workers have started a petition demanding a minimum wage of at least $549 as the first step. They have declared that they should be getting over $1,220 per month, but that today they are asking for a minimum wage of $549 as the first step, and that a mini-mum wage less than that should be ille-gal. According to the reports we have received, this protest petition is being signed in cities such as Tehran, Karaj, Demavand, Kermanshah, Abadan and Isfehan. Only in Kashan, 3,000 workers so far have signed it.  

Furthermore, in protest at the recogni-tion by the ILO of the so-called ‘House of Workers’, which is a government agency, as the representative of Iranian workers, the ‘Follow-up Committee for the Formation of Free Labour Organisations’ has demanded that Iranian workers should have the right to freely organize and that their organizations should be recognized by international organizations as Iranian workers’ representatives.

These latest struggles, focusing on the minimum wage and the right to organ-ize, have given the labour movement a nationwide character.  

Furthermore, in the last three months we have witnessed long strikes such as the two-month long strike in West Alborz coal mine in northern Iran; the strike and control of factory by workers in Filoor, a factory near Tehran, which forced man-agers to give in to workers’ demands; and rallies and picket lines such as at Pars Textile factory in northern Iran. In Iran-Khodroo car plant, with their solidarity and unity, the workers were able to bring back to work their expelled co-workers. Also, on the anniversary of Khatoon Abad massacre in the city of Babak, in a show of solidarity, the workers of a num-ber of factories climbed Klone Bestack heights.

伊朗工人要求最低工资达到550美元

伊朗工人发表了一篇请愿书,呼吁最低月工资达到550美元;这是第一步。到目前为止已经有至少四千名工人署名。


伊朗工人关于提高最低工资到550美元的请愿书:

关于2005年的最低工资

现在,我们的工资不够活命所需。当每个经理或高层管理者的月薪超过1300美元或2500美元之时——暂且不提他们其他的收入和财产,我们的最低工资却被定为每月130美元。这发生在收入少于1300美元就无法生活的时代。一小撮寄生虫通过剥削我们摇身变为百万富翁,同时我们却无力送子女去初等学校。目前的最低工资标准是官方宣布的贫困线的三分之一。我们需要一个符合现代人类标准的舒适生活。不该再有人忍受当前的这种生活。

我们这些工人,教师,护士,合同工或固定工,男性或女性,在职的或失业的,从全国各地发出了争取体面生活权的号召。合适的食品,合适的衣服,合适的住房,高质量的保健,以及放松和休闲的时间,这些都是我们的权利。为了达到这样的标准,我们声明月工资至少要达到1300美元。尽管如此,当我们为获得应得的公平工资而奋斗的同时,作为行动的第一步,我们要求最低工资不得低于550美元。550美元按照官方的数据,是每个人为满足最基本的需求所需要的标准。我们主张低于这一底线的工资必须被列为非法。该标准必须覆盖全体挣工资者,不论他们是合同工还是正式岗位职工,包括教师和护士。

我们宣布我们不会再忍受非人道的生存环境了。并且,为了让公平和正义的要求得到实现,我们呼吁全伊朗的具有公正头脑和荣誉感的人以及全世界的工人组织支持我们的要求。

Workers in Iran demand $500 minimum wage

“The following is the text of a petition issued by workers in Iran calling for a $500 per month minimum wage, as the first step. So far it has been signed by at least four thousand workers.”

Petition in Iran that demands a minimum wage of $550:
On the Minimum Wage for 2005

At the present time, our wages are absolutely not sufficient for our livelihood. While every manager or higher ranking authority is getting paid wages over $1,300 or $2,500, and while they have other incomes and assets, our minimum wage has been set at $130 per month. This is happening at a time when it is impossible to live with a pay of less than $1,300. From our exploitation a few parasites are be-coming millionaires, while we are unable even to send our children to elementary school. The current minimum wage is one third of the declared official poverty line. We demand a comfortable livelihood which would match today’s human stan-dard. No one deserves the life we have.

We as workers, teachers, nurses, contract or permanent, male or female, employed or unemployed, all over the country declare that a humane and better livelihood is our right. Proper food, proper clothing, decent housing, a high standard of healthcare, and time for relaxation and leisure is our right; we declare that to obtain this standard, wages must be at least $1,300 per month. Nonetheless, while we are striving to obtain fair wages, we demand that, as the first step, the minimum wage should be at least $550, which, according to official figures, is the level that must be reached for anyone to have a bare-minimum subsistence. We demand that wages of less than that be immediately declared illegal. This minimum wage should cover all wage-earners, be they in contract work or in a permanent position, including teachers and nurses.

We declare that we should not tolerate these inhumane living conditions, and to reach this fair and just demand, we call upon all fair-minded and honorable people in Iran and all workers’ organizations all over the world to support our demand.

“自由劳工组织建设行动委员会”的请愿书


请愿书

致:
伊朗劳动与社会事务部
全球的劳工组织
国际劳工组织(ILO)


大约一半的伊朗工人工作在临时的或所谓“空白的”合同下,没有任何权利可言。据政府估算,在未来的数年间临时合同工将占到全部雇员的90%。 此外,伊朗的立法者们已经从劳动法的30个条款中免除了5至10人以下工厂和地毯编织厂的义务,现在又打算剥夺全体临时合同工仅存的那一点社会保障。

在这样的背景中,一个针对修订现行劳工法第六章(关于劳工组织)的谅解备忘录在伊朗签署,国际劳工组织(ILO)派出观察团进行监督;不幸的是工人的独立代表却全部缺席。以上事件完美地印证了伊朗工人的无权利状况。

显然,被剥夺了独立组织的伊朗工人们,一直在盯着“反劳工法”是如何突破ILO惯例而强行通过的。他们决不会承认这个从策划到签署全无工人代表参加的备忘录。

因此我们要求有建立独立劳工组织的权利。为了这个目的,我们要求伊朗劳动与社会事务部不再阻碍工人组织的建立,并且与起草劳工法案有关的全部会议,独立工人代表均可参与。我们请求全世界的劳工组织支持伊朗工人的公正要求。

此外,我们请这些劳工组织的同事们向ILO呼吁,任何与劳工法有关的协议在承认和签署时都必须有独立工人代表参加(独立工人代表从工人监督集体投票中产生)。

PETITION

To:
Iranian Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs
World labour organisations
International Labour Organization (ILO)

About half of Iranian workers currently work under temporary or even so-called ‘blank’ contracts, without any rights. According to official estimates, in a few years’ time the number of workers on temporary contracts will reach 90% of all employees. Furthermore, the legislators in Iran, having exempted workshops of less than 5 to 10 workers and carpet-weavers from the Labour Law (from 30 Articles of the Law), are now aiming to deprive all workers on temporary contracts from a minimum of social security.

In such conditions, the ILO by sending a delegation to Iran to oversee the signing of a memorandum of understanding regarding amendments to Chapter 6 of the existing Labour Law (on labour organisations), which unfortunately took place in the absence of workers’ independent representatives, effectively recognised and put a stamp of approval on the rightlessness of workers in Iran.

Clearly, Iranian workers who, deprived of their independent organisations, have always witnessed the imposition of anti-labour laws in breach of ILO Conventions, will not recognise a memorandum in whose drawing up and signing their representatives have not taken part.

Therefore, we, the undersigned, call for the recognition of the right to form independent labour organisations. Towards this end, while calling on the Iranian Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs for the removal of impediments to the creation of workers’ organisations and recognising the participation of independent workers’ representatives in all meetings relevant to the drafting of labour laws, request labour organisations around the world to support the just demands of Iranian workers.

Furthermore,  we  ask  our colleagues in these organisations to call on the ILO to make the recognition and signing of any agreements relating to labour laws subject to the participation of independent workers’ representatives (chosen through workers’  collective vote in supervised elections).

伊朗:工人抗议合同工作和反劳工的立法,数千人签署请愿书


致所有工人团体和工会

        2005年2月8日

亲爱的工友们:

以下的请愿书是由一组抗议合同工作、禁止工人结社和反劳工立法的伊朗工人发起的。直至目前为止,它已经由几千名来自全伊朗的不同产业中心的工人签署,这个数字还在与日俱增。请愿书在不同的工厂和其他工作场所流传。这是一个广泛的运动,需要得到巨大的支持。

你可能也知道,伊朗的工人被剥夺了结社,罢工或选出自己的谈判代表的权利。此外, 政府和雇主正逐渐增多地外包服务并把长期合同转为临时性的合同,抑或只是象征性的不包括任何明确的用工权利/条款的合同(即所谓的“空白”合同) 。这取消了任何形式的就业安全,并造成了只堪于奴隶制相比的状况。因此争取结社权和拥有独立机构的权利变得比任何时候都要迫切。迎着伊斯兰独裁政权,工人已为争取人道的工作条件开始了抗击雇主和政府的大规模斗争。这个请愿书就是他们的一项集体倡议。

我请求你签署这份请愿书,让您的全体会员签署并发布在您的组织的网站和其他出版物上。这会给伊朗工人巨大的鼓励。在今天,国际主义的团结对伊朗工人运动的氛围比任何时候都有着更加深刻的影响。我希望伊朗工人这个要求支持的呼吁会受到所有工人的积极响应。
   
这是签署请愿书的链接地址。请把此链接放在您的网站上:www.kargaran.org/feb05_wrk_petition.asp

To All Workers’ Organisations and Trade Unions

Iran: Workers Protest Contract Work and Anti-Labour
Legislation
Thousands Sign Petition

February 8, 2005

Dear Colleagues,

The following petition has been issued by a group of Iranian workers who are protesting against contract work, the ban on formation of workers’ organisations and anti-labour legislation. So far, it has been signed by several thousand workers of different industrial centres from all over Iran and the number of signatures is growing daily. The petition is going round different factories and other workplaces. This is a broad movement that needs to receive huge support.

You may know that workers in Iran are deprived of the right to organise, strike or elect their own representatives to represent them in negotiations. Furthermore, the Government and employers are increasingly contracting out services and converting permanent contracts into temporary ones or merely signed agreements without any rights or terms of employment specified (so-called ‘blank’ contracts). This has obliterated any kind of job security and has imposed a condition, which could only be compared to slavery. Thus the right to organise and to have organisations independent of the state has never been more pressing. Notwithstanding the Islamic dictatorship, workers have started a massive struggle for humane working conditions against the employers’ and Government’s attacks. This petition is one of their collective initiatives.

I request that you sign this petition, take it to your membership to sign and post it in your union's websites and other publications. This will give the workers in Iran huge encouragement. Today more than ever, international solidarity has a profound impact on the climate of the workers’ movement in Iran. I hope this call for support by Iranian workers will meet with a positive response from all workers.

This is the link for signing the petition. Please put this link on your site: http://www.kargaran.org/feb05_wrk_petition.asp

Yours sincerely,
Kazem Nik-Khah
Secretary, Worker-communist Party of Iran –
Committee Abroad

编辑的话:

我不知道在伊朗有任何关于工人问题的英语时事通讯。 《伊朗工人》(《Workers in Iran》)将试图填补这一空白。西方媒体把伊朗描绘为一个伊斯兰教社会。我们想表明,这是一个虚假的图景。这个社会的阶级斗争非常激烈,在过去的26年中一秒钟都从未停止。当然,它也经历了低潮和高涨时期,但它从来没有让这片土地上最大的资本家,伊朗伊斯兰共和国(Islamic Republic of Iran,伊朗全称——译者注),得到片刻悠闲。

《伊朗工人》的这份创刊号将在今年的五一集会和庆祝活动上分发。我们,伊朗工人共产党的国际劳工团结委员会(the International Labour Solidarity Committee of the Worker-communist
Party of Iran),向全体读者祝贺这个最重要的工人节日。

《伊朗工人》珍视并欢迎任何意见和/或批评,来使这个时事通讯变得更好。

A few words from the Editor:

I am not aware of any English newsletter dealing with workers’ issues in Iran.Workers in Iran will try to fill part of this gap. The media in the West portrays Iran as an Islamic society. We would like to show that this is a false picture. The class struggle is very intense in that society; and it has not subsided even for a brief second in the last 26 years. Of course, it has gone through its ebbs and flows, but it has never let the Islamic Republic of Iran, which is the biggest capitalist of that land, to have a moment of ease.

This first issue of WI will be distributed at this year’s May Day rallies and celebrations. We, at the International Labour Solidarity Committee of the Worker-communist Party of Iran would like to congratulate this most important workers holiday to all of our readers.

WI values and welcomes any comments and/or criticisms to improve the newsletter.

给ICFTU的信


2005年5月9日
致布鲁塞尔,自由工会国际联盟(International Confederation of Free Trade Unions,ICFTU) 总书记Guy Ryder
优先级: 紧急

亲爱的Ryder先生,
[回复《伊朗的Sadegh Amiri先生和Parviz Salarvand先生被拘留》]

我写信请您帮助使最近被伊朗政权拘留的两名劳工活动家获得释放。

根据自由劳工组织建设行动委员会(the Follow-Up Committee for the Formation of Free Labour Organisation)的消息,一位同该委员会有密切合作的劳工活动家Sadegh Amiri先生已被拘留。5月5日星期四,他在他的工作场所被3个自我介绍是名来自信息部(Information Ministry)(伊朗的秘密警察)的人逮捕。关于Amiri先生的命运或下落没有进一步可靠的消息。供参考地,行动委员会最近发表了一份(已受到伊朗工人热烈欢迎的)呼吁组建自由劳工团体的权利和终止合同工作的请愿书。今年委员会在德黑兰还组织了一场劳动节集会。

此外,根据一组在Iran Khodro汽车制造公司的工人的报告,Iran Khodro的一名雇员Parviz Salarvand先生,在4月12日被该公司的安全组织(叫做Herasat)带走审问。 Salarvand先生的家人和同事们25天没有收到有关他的下落的消息了。然而,遭受他的同事抗议之后,公司的保安终于证实他是被拘留了。Salarvand先生的罪名是对不支付年终奖金和(特别是合同工的)低工资提出抗议。

伊朗当局已经逮捕了这些捍卫工人的权利的工人。他们的生命处于危险之中。我想请你用最强烈的措辞抗议伊朗政府继续骚扰工人,并要求立即释放Sadegh Amiri先生和Parviz Salarvand先生。

您真诚的,
伊朗工人共产党国外委员会(Worker-communist Party of Iran Committee Abroad) 书记  Kazem Nik-Khah

Letter to ICFTU

Guy Ryder
General Secretary
International Confederation of Free Trade Unions (ICFTU)
Brussels
Priority: Urgent
Dear Mr Ryder,
Re: Detention of Mr Sadegh Amiri & Mr Parviz Salarvand in Iran  


I am writing to request your help to gain the release of two labour activists recently detained by the regime in Iran.

According to the Follow-Up Committee for the Formation of Free Labour Organisations, Mr Sadegh Amiri, a labour activist who has worked closely with that committee, has been detained. He was arrested on Thursday May 5th at his workplace by three people introducing themselves as officers from the Information Ministry (Iran’s secrete police). No further information is available about the fate or whereabouts of Mr Amiri. For your information, the Follow-up Committee recently issued a petition calling for the right to form free labour organisations and an end to contract work, which has been warmly received by workers in Iran. The Committee also organised a May Day rally in Tehran this year.

Also, according to a group of workers at Iran Khodro car-manufacturing company, Mr Parviz Salarvand, who is an Iran Khodro employee, was taken away for questioning by the company’s Security Organisation (Herasat) on April 12th. Mr Salarvand’s family and colleagues have had no information about his whereabouts for 25 days. However, following protests by his co-workers, the company’s Security has finally confirmed that he is in detention. Mr Salarvand’s offence is to have protested at the non-payment of the year-end bonus and the low level of pay, in particular for contract workers.

The authorities in Iran have arrested these workers for defending workers’ rights. Their lives are in danger. I would like to request that you protest to the Iranian government in the strongest possible terms for its continued harassment of workers, demanding the immediate release of Mr Sadegh Amiri and Mr Parviz Salarvand.   

Yours sincerely,

Kazem Nik-Khah
Secretary

伊朗2005年的劳动节

作者:Nasser Asgary


在今年劳动节前的日子里,工人们的心情各有不同。这是工人反对资本主义的控告日。伊朗的劳工运动正在被攻击。他们完全有理由参加独立的劳动节集会和庆祝活动。最低工资被定为官方贫困线的三分之一。劳工积极分子被逮捕,骚扰,起诉和列入黑名单。独立工会组织被禁止。抗议的气氛是如此之高和激烈,甚至由国家代理人组织的集会也变成使工人更加反对政府政策的地方。今年的劳动节集会和游行上通过了各种劳动节决议。每一个决议的一个共同要求就是加薪。

  *德黑兰最早的一个劳动节集会于4月29日在位于德黑兰附近的Chaloos高速公路上的Khoor falls召开。从德黑兰和Karaj的不同工作场所赶来的超过一千名的工人与他们的家属一起参加了这次会议。它以关于劳动节历史、国际劳工组织(International Labour Organization,ILO)和组织起来的需要和权利的演讲开始。这次会议和野餐持续到下午5点。

  *在劳动节德黑兰的许多工厂被关闭了。虽然伊斯兰教的劳工法(Islamic Labour Law)宣称劳动节为假日,却从未强制执行它。 在过去几年,工人在这天被迫工作,却没有任何加班费。 阶级力量的均衡迫使雇主关闭工作场所并公开宣布今年劳动节为假日。 在劳动节之前,Iran Khodro汽车工厂的工人说他们不会在劳动节工作。 在此压力下,经理发布了一个通知声明在劳动节工厂将关闭。 工人们聚集在劳工局前面并且庆祝劳动节。德黑兰运输工作者也聚集在伊斯兰教的议会前面。在德黑兰不同的区组织了许多其他较小的会议。

  * 4月30日自由劳工组织建设行动委员会(the Follow-up Committee for the Formation of Free Workers’ Organizations)在德黑兰政治学大学召集了一次会议。两位著名工人活动家,Jafar Azim Zadeh和Borhan Divargar,和学生积极分子Behzad Karimi Zadeh一起,发表劳动节演讲,谴责资本主义,并强调工人的团结一致。

  *在劳动节的一个由官办的“工人之家”("Workers' House")和“伊斯兰委员会”("Islamic Councils")所召集的集会上,10000~12000名工人在伊朗最大的综合体育场馆——Azadi体育场中集会。这些所谓的工人组织的代理人试图利用这个机会,在即将举行的总统选举前,为伊朗政治舞台最讨厌的人物——前总统Rafsanjani游说。当工人们察觉了他们的意图,他们开始高喊反对他的口号并全体离开了集会。在伊朗伊斯兰共和国通讯社(Islamic Republic of Iran’s News Agency)所做的一次采访中,一名工人被问到他的劳动节要求是什么时,他说,最低工资应当是550美元。这个答案,受到在体育场内的其他工人的热烈掌声。“工人之家”的头头Alierza Mehjoob,和“伊斯兰委员会”的头头Hassan Sadeqi的演讲却遭到一片嘘声。

  *劳动节,在Tabriz市散发了数以千计的传单,要求最低工资达到550美元。在劳动节前的日子里,整个城市到处都是诸如:“打倒伊斯兰共和国”,“打倒资本主义”,“自由万岁,平等万岁”,“社会主义万岁”,“我们不要伊斯兰教”等等的涂鸦。Tabriz市工人劳动节通过的决议中也包含了最低工资达到550美元的要求。此外,周三4月27日由“工人之家”和“伊斯兰委员会”在职工礼堂的召集的会议,吸引了约2000名工人。在这次会议上,工人提出了与官方代理人提出的决议相对立的决议,含有9条要求,包括:要求组织权,最低工资达到550美元,立劳动节为法定假日,同工同酬等。最后与会者高喊反对“工人之家”政策的口号。“工人之家”的官员提出的决议已被否决。

  *在劳动节,伊斯法罕炼油厂的不同部分的工人停止工作两小时,并庆祝国际劳动节。这是该公司第一次认可劳动节。工人要求劳动节被宣布为官方假日。有消息说,工人在今年的劳动节的工作将被支付加班费。石油工人已经备份了一份请愿书,要求每月550美元的最低工资。工人要求劳动节被宣布为正式假日。有消息说,工人将支付加班工作,完成今年的劳动节。此外,石油工人已开始了一份请愿书,要求最低工资五百五十美元

  *在库尔德斯坦省(Kurdistan)的Bokan镇,劳工活动家Ismail Khodkam连同另外两人在散发劳动节传单时被逮捕和骚扰。他们被逮捕引发了公众抗议,迫使当局在短暂拘留之后释放了他们。

   *在去年的劳动节游行中被逮捕的七个Saqiz劳工积极分子中的两个被安排出庭。在法院前召开了劳动节集会以示抗议;但法官和检察官改变了他们的计划,劳动节前一天晚上,他们派出信使把两人安排至下次排定的审理日。省长Saqez正式邀请去年被逮捕的另一名劳工活动家Mahmood Salehi,在政府举办的劳动节庆祝活动作为一个特邀演讲者。在演讲中,Salehi谴责Khodkam的遭逮捕和审讯。

  *在南部城市阿瓦士(Ahvaz)、阿巴丹(Abadan)和玛沙赫尔(Mah Shahr),一项由“南胡齐斯坦自由和平等协会”(Freedom and Equality Society of Southern Khūzestān)发布的,要求组织权、罢工权、550美元最低工资并谴责宗教和种族煽动的决议,于劳动节集会上被分发。该决议要求工人及其家属在他们的总集会和一般会议上讨论劳动节。

  *4月29日,位于克尔曼沙阿省(Kermanshah)的Bistoon的石油工人在萨南达季-德黑兰(Sanandaj–Tehran)高速公路上庆祝劳动节。政府的武装力量阻止其他人加入会议。此外,2000人响应自由劳工组织建设行动委员会的号召,在克尔曼沙阿市的市中心庆祝劳动节。政府的武装力量阻止了演讲。然而,数以千计的传单已被分发给与会者。

May Day 2005 in Iran

By Nasser Asgary


In the days leading up to this year’s May Day, the workers’ mood was different. It was a day of workers’ indictment against capitalism. Iran’s labour movement is on the attack. They had every reason to participate in independent May Day meetings and celebrations. The minimum wage is set at one third of the official poverty line. Labour activists are being arrested, harassed, prosecuted and blacklisted. Independent labour organizations are banned. The atmosphere of protest is so high and intense that even the meetings organized by state agents were turned into a place to raise labour’s disapproval of government’s policies. Various May Day resolutions were passed on this year’s May Day gatherings and marches. One common demand of every resolution was the demand of pay raise.

  * The first May Day meeting in Tehran was held on April 29 in Khoor falls, located in Chaloos highway near Tehran. More than one thousand workers from different workplaces of Tehran and Karaj, along with their family members participated in this meeting. It started with speeches on the history of May Day, on the International Labour Organization (ILO) and on the need, and the right, to organize. This meeting and picnic lasted up to 5 pm.

  * In Tehran many industries were shut down on May Day. Even though the Islamic Labour Law has declared May Day a holiday, it has never enforced it. In the past years, workers were forced to work on this day without any overtime pay. The balance of power forced the employers to shut down the workplaces and openly declare this year’s May Day a holiday. Ahead of May Day, Iran Khodro auto workers had said that they would not be working on May Day. Under this pressure, management issued a notice declaring that on May Day the factory will be closed. Workers gathered in front of the Employment Office and celebrated May Day. The Tehran Transit workers too gathered in front of the Islamic parliament. Many other smaller meetings were organized in different districts of Tehran.

  * On April 30 a meeting was called by the Follow-up Committee for the Formation of Free Workers’ Organizations at the Political Science University in Tehran. Two well-known workers’ activists, Jafar Azim Zadeh and Borhan Divargar, along with a student activist, Behzad Karimi Zadeh, presented speeches on May Day, condemning capitalism and emphasizing workers’ solidarity.

  * On May Day in a meeting called by the state-made “Workers’ House” and “Islamic Councils”, 10 to 12 thousand workers gathered in Azadi Stadium, the largest sports complex in Iran. The agents of these so-called workers’ organizations tried to use this occasion to canvass for ex-president, the most hated figure on the Iranian political scene, ahead of the upcoming presidential elections. When the workers found out about their intentions, they started shouting slogans against him and left the meeting en masse. In an interview done by the Islamic Republic of Iran’s News Agency, a worker who was asked what his May Day message was, said the minimum wage should be $550.00. This answer was greeted with loud applause by other workers in the sports complex. Speeches by Alierza Mehjoob, the head of Workers’ House, and Hassan Sadeqi, the head of Islamic Councils, were greeted by loud boos.

  * Thousands of leaflets were distributed on May Day in the city of, demanding a minimum wage of $550.00. In the days leading up to May Day, graffiti such as: “Down with the Islamic Republic”, “Down with Capitalism”, “Long Live Freedom, Long Live Equality”, “Long Live Socialism”, “We Don’t Want Islam”, etc. appeared all over the city. The resolution that workers of Tabriz passed on May Day also demanded, among others, a minimum wage of $550.00. Furthermore; on Wednesday April 27 a meeting was called by “Workers’ House” and “Islamic Councils” in Workers’ Auditorium, which drew about 2000 workers. In this meeting, workers presented a counter-resolution to the resolution presented by the regime’s agents, containing 9 demands, which among others, called for the right to organize, $550.00 minimum wage, for May Day as official holiday, equal pay for equal work, etc. Participants at the end shouted slogans against the policies of “Workers’ House”. The resolution presented by “Workers’ House” officials was defeated.

  * On May Day workers of different sections of Esfahan Oil Refinery stopped work for two hours and celebrated International Workers’ day. This is the first time that this company has recognized May Day. Workers have demanded that May Day be declared an official holiday. There is news that the workers will be paid overtime for work that was done on this year’s May Day. Furthermore, the oil workers have started a petition demanding a minimum wage of $550.00

  * In Bokan, a town in the Kurdistan province, Ismail Khodkam, a labour activist, along with two others, were arrested and harassed while distributing May Day leaflets. Their arrest met with public protest, pressuring the authorities to release them after a short detention.

  * Two of seven Saqiz labour activists that were arrested in last year’s May Day march, were scheduled to appear in the court. May Day meeting was called to protest this in front of the court; however the judge and prosecutors changed their plan and the night before May Day, they sent a messenger and handed them the next scheduled court date. The governor of Saqez officially invited Mahmood Salehi, another labour activist that was arrested last year, to be a guest speaker in government organized May Day celebration. In his speech, Salehi condemned Khodkam’s arrest, and interrogation.

  * In the southern cities of Ahvaz, Abadan and Mahshahr, a resolution issued by the “Freedom and Equality Society of Southern Khozestan”, demanding the right to organize, the right to strike, a minimum wage of $550.00 and condemning religious and tribal instigations, was distributed on the May Day meetings. The resolution asked workers and their families to discuss May Day in their General Assemblies and meetings.

  * On April 29, petrochemical workers of Bistoon located in Kermanshah celebrated May Day in Sanandaj–Tehran highway. The regime’s armed forces prevented others from joining the meeting. Furthermore, 2000 people responded to the call by the Follow-up Committee for the Formation of Free Workers’ Organizations to celebrate May Day in Kermanshah’s city center. The regime’s armed forces prevented speeches from being made. However, thousands of leaflets were distributed to participants.

  *In the days leading up to May Day, the Follow-up Committee for the Formation of Free Workers’ Organizations, and Kurdistan Textile Workers’ Council in the city of Sanandaj had posted big placards congratulating May Day and calling on everyone to participate in the May Day march. At 10 a.m. more than 500 workers, while surrounded by the regime’s armed forces to prevent people from joining in, gathered in front of the Employment Office of the city. The meeting started with a minute of silence for those who had dedicated their lives to workers’ cause. The plan was that labour activists would make speeches. However, when the first speaker, Sheis Amani, a representative of Kurdistan Textile workers, was about to address the meeting, the security forces prevented him from speaking. In response to workers’ protest, they asked workers to join the government- organized meeting at Fajr Auditorium. Taking advantage of this, the workers marched several kilometers towards Fajr Auditorium. They carried banners with their demands written on them. One of the banners was in support of Filver factory and Kashan textile workers’ demand for $550.00 minimum wage. A resolution was read out by Mohammad Nemati, a worker activist, which was passed by marchers’ cheers and applauses. The resolution demanded, among others, a minimum wage of $550.00, a work week of 30 hours, prohibition of child labour, the right to strike and the right to organize. When they reached Fajr Auditorium, an expelled worker made a speech against the regime’s massive downsizing, cutbacks and other workers’ demands. Following his speech, a woman worker talked about the oppression that women face and about women workers’ issues. She condemned the government’s and bosses’ anti-labour legislations. These speeches were met with warm applauses.

  * In Kamyaran, in the Kurdistan province, in the days leading up to May Day, thousands of leaflets by the Follow- up Committee for the Formation of Free Workers’ Organizations were distributed and posted on the walls, expressing workers’ demands and resolution. The demands and slogans included: Long Live May Day, International Working Class Day! May Day Must Be Declared A Public Holiday! Wages Less Than $550.00 Per Month Are Not Sufficient to Live On! The leaflets had the time and place of the gathering written on them, however the security forces stopped the public meeting.

  * One day to May Day, workers of Behshaher Shipbuilding factory, which employs 1,500 workers, started a petition demanding a minimum wage of $550.00. Most of the workers had signed the petition when the plant’s Islamic Society prevented its circulation.

伊朗工人的劳动节决议

我们要求人道的生活!


(下面是在德黑兰的一次劳动节集会上通过的决议的文本。该决议由自由劳工组织建设行动委员会(the Follow-Up Committee for the Formation of Free Labour Organisations)所提出,集会也是由该委员会所召集。 一个相似的决议在萨南达季市(Sanandaj)的劳动节集会上通过了。工人在大不里士市(Tabriz)散发了一份包括九条的决议。)


今天,就在这刻,为资本家生产利润的巨轮停止转动了,成千上万工作者停止了工作以抗议资本主义强加给他们的苦难。

115年以来劳动节一直是这样的一天。这天是对作为资本主义的结果的苦难的回应。资本主义是建立在折磨绝大多数人类的剥夺上的。无止境的贫穷、失业、工作不安定、卖淫、毒瘾、奴役儿童和诱拐儿童、绑架、战争、种族灭绝和许多其他浩劫都是这个残忍的系统的产品。同时,尽管生产技术在前进,全世界工人的生活和工作环境却恶化了,成千上万的人越来越陷入赤贫。这是因为在资本主义下,技术进展的目的不是人民的福利,而是资本的利润。

这个不公道的系统配不上人类,必须被推翻。享受我们创造的所有资源是我们工人的权利。我们想要看到人对人的剥削的终结,和一个人道社会的诞生。为了这个结果,为了获得这样的条件,我们宣称我们如下的要求,并坚持要立即实现它们:

  我们要求成立工人组织的自由。我们认为,不用国家当局的许可,也不受国家当局干涉就能成立组织是我们的权利。

  最高劳工理事会(Supreme Council of Labour)核定的最低工资是对人民最基本的权利的侵害,即生命权和享受适于人类生活的权利。我们要求立即修改最低工资水平至这样一个水平,即可以确保工人按照今天的标准和人类进步水平体面地生活。

  临时就业合同必须予以废除。所有工作在这类合同下的工人必须以长期合约雇用。

  罢工是我们的权利。我们要求罢工权,并利用各种公认的劳工抗议形式。我们认为,当我们的社会和福利权利受到损害,我们有权采取罢工行动。

  在工作时间和工作场所举行大集会应当被承认。我们要求工人代表直接参与、介入三方会议和所有有关工人的未来的事务。这些代表应在大集会上通过工人的直选产生。

  所有拖欠的工资必须立即支付。目前,不按时支付职工工资已成为雇主的习惯。为了制止这种情况,雇主对工资的任何拖延必须被宣布为非法。

  我们要求18岁以上的每个人,不管男人还是女人,都拥有工作机会或充足的失业救济金。必须支付给每个准备工作的人一份相当于最低工资的失业救济金。

  我们支持教师和护士的正义要求,并要求他们被侵害的权利获得补偿。

  我们要求废除任何形式的性别歧视,并支持男性和女性在所有经济和社会领域之间的完全平等。

  工人由于参加福利或社会活动而遭到一切形式的恐吓,骚扰,驱逐,逮捕和驱逐出境必须立即停止,并宣布为非法。以任何形式或借口进行的缩编和裁员,必须予以禁止和制止。我们要求恢复所有失业职工的工作并补偿他们的遭受的损害。

  我们要求为领取养老金者增加养老金,为领取伤残津贴者增加伤残津贴,并为他们提供体面和有尊严的生活。

  劳动节必须被承认为一个法定假日,并纳入国家的日历。与此同时,以任何形式或手段禁止在这一天举行仪式的做法必须立即撤销。

我们呼吁所有工人热烈地庆祝劳动节并作为一个统一阶层支持这一决议。

Workers’ May Day Resolution in Iran


We demand a life worthy of human beings!


The following is the text of the resolution passed at a May Day rally in Tehran. It was put forward by the Follow-Up Committee for the Formation of Free Labour Organisations, who had also called the rally. A similar resolution was passed at the May Day rally in the city of Sanandaj, while a nine-point resolution was distributed by workers in the city of Tabriz.

Today, at this very moment, the wheels of production of profit for capitalists have ground to a halt and millions of workers have stopped work in protest at the hardship that capitalism has imposed on them.

For 115 years May Day has been such a day. This day is a response to the hardships that are the result of capitalism. Capitalism is behind all the deprivations afflicting the overwhelming majority of humanity. Unending poverty, unemployment, job insecurity, prostitution, addiction, child slavery and kidnapping, war, genocide and numerous other catastrophes are all products of this inhuman system. At the same time, despite advances in the technology of production, workers’ living and working conditions around the world have deteriorated, with millions sinking deeper and deeper into abject poverty. This is because for capitalism the objective of technological progress is not welfare of people but capital’s profitability.

This unjust system is not worthy of human beings and must be overturned. It is the right of us workers to enjoy all the resources that we ourselves produce. We want to see an end to exploitation of man by man and the creation of a humane society. Towards this end and for securing such conditions, we declare our demands as follows and insist on their immediate realisation:

We demand the freedom to set up workers’ organisations. We regard it as our right to form our organisations without the permission or interference of the state authorities.
The minimum wage approved by the Supreme Council of Labour is a violation of people’s most basic right, i.e. the right to life and enjoyment of a livelihood worthy of human beings. We demand immediate revision of the minimum wage to such a level as to ensure a decent livelihood for workers in line with today’s standards and levels of human progress.

Temporary employment contracts must be revoked. All workers working under such contracts should be employed on a permanent basis.

Strike is our right. We demand the right to strike and to make use of all recognised forms of labour protest. We regard it as our right to take strike action in the face of violation of our social and welfare rights.

Holding general assemblies during working hours and in the workplace should be recognised. We demand direct participation and intervention of workers’ representatives in tripartite meetings and in all matters relating to workers’ future. Such representatives should be elected in general assemblies through workers’ direct vote.

All overdue wages must be paid immediately. At the moment, the failure to pay workers’ wages on time has become a usual way with the employers. To put an end to this situation, any delays by employers in payment of wages must be declared illegal.

We demand jobs or adequate unemployment benefit for everyone, man or woman, over the age of 18. An unemployment benefit equivalent to the minimum wage must be paid to everyone who is ready for work.
We support the just demands of teachers and nurses and demand the redressing of their violated rights.
We demand the abolition of any form of sexual discrimination, and support full equality between men and women in all economic and social domains.

All forms of intimidation, harassment, banishment, arrest and expulsion of workers for reasons of welfare and social activities must be immediately stopped and declared illegal. Downsizing and redundancies under whatever form or pretext must be prohibited and stopped. We demand the reinstatement of all laid-off workers and compensating them for damages incurred.

We demand rise in pensions for pensioners and disability benefits for the disabled and provision of decent and dignified livelihood for them.

May Day must be recognised as an official holiday and incorporated into the national calendar. At the same time, any bans on holding ceremonies on this day in any form or shape must be immediately revoked.

We call on all workers to celebrate May Day magnificently and to support this resolution as a united rank.

伊朗劳工运动的条件、需求和斗争

作者:Shahla Daneshfar

伊朗工人近年来在工作和生活环境方面成为日益增加的攻击目标。政府数据称有1600万人失业,其中1000万青年。而现在伊朗每年有100多万青年工人进入劳动力市场。

近年来成千上万的工人失业,每天都有工人被解雇且没有基本补偿。

将永久工作变为三月一签合同成为伊朗大多数工作场所的普遍情况。有永久工作的工人被解雇,他们和其他失业工人在同样的岗位上被雇为合同工,并拿着尽可能低的工资或福利。这和公开奴隶制无异。

伊朗伊斯兰共和国将最低工资设为每月130美元,而该政府宣布的贫困线为320美元。尽管如此还是有超过100万工人月收入低于最低工资,其中一部分已经持续了将近两年。而且,在很多工作场所,工人被雇为月薪约65美元的合同工。

这种局面迫使工人家庭通过出售器官、卖淫、童工以维持生存。这导致工人吸毒成瘾、自杀、家庭破裂,带来身体和精神上的毁灭。

伊朗的工作场所很不安全,且工人代表不许监视工作场所的健康和安全。仅在过去两年,伊朗最大一百家工厂之一的霍德罗汽车厂就有九人死亡。在两个案件中,两名据说没有任何疾病史的青年工人死于长时间过度工作带来的心脏骤停。

伊朗工人没有自由地建立劳工组织、罢工、集体谈判和协定的权利。任何组织这些的企图都会受到迫害和镇丫。为达到他们的要求,工人不得不抗议,在他们抗议时面对的是武装警察。两年前警察对哈通-阿巴德(Khatoon Abad)的铜矿工人罢工集会开枪,造成四人死亡。去年冬天在佛梅纳特(Fomenat)的纺织工人罢工中,工人遭到安全部队的殴打。

工人活动家每天都被威胁、拘留和审问。仅在上月沙迪赫·阿米里、帕尔维兹·萨拉万德、莫森·哈桑·扎德、罗亚·多鲁迪等很多工人活动家被逮捕,但此后在抗议的压力下被释放。


工人开始反击

工人在他们的生命和生计被攻击时不是旁观者。在伊朗的工作场所每天都发生着抗议。今天对雇员和政府来说,罢工、示威和最后通牒已成为伊朗工人抗议的通常形式。在政府办公室前抗议集会、增加组织方面努力、举办全国范围壮观的劳动节集会(26年来最大规模的一次,尽管这些活动非法)、在会议上发表决议、提出明确要求、对现实情况作出激进和尖锐的演讲、工人参加诸多劳动委员会和活动中心、工人活动家公开向前迈进、用真名撰写信件和声明、工人的配偶参加活动等——这就是伊朗工人阶级另一幅图景的各个方面。

作为对他们面对问题的回应,工人们已经努力在伊朗国内外建立强劲的团结和支持。这些努力在过去两年加强工人斗争发面起着重要作用,且偶尔成功地劝说整个城镇支持他们主张,迫使政府和雇主对他们要求让步。例如最近在萨南达季市(Sanandaj)沙胡工厂的罢工中我们目睹了在群众中广泛的团结运动。而且在马赫沙尔(Mahshahr)石化工厂的一部分,大约30名工人在反对欠薪的抗议中,推进了一场强有力的运动以迫使资方付清被拖欠的工资。

在当前的抗议中,国际上对伊朗工人的团结力量支持他们的斗争和需要变得更加重要。给伊朗工人发支持信、给伊朗政权发抗议信、派代表团参观工作场所、支持被列入目标的工人活动家等,只是团结力量近年来作出的一些行为之一,以帮助工人进行反击。


工人当前的要求

伊朗发生的工人抗议主要围绕着以下问题和要求:

1)独立于政府的自由劳工组织。工人说他们不须经政府允许而建立自己的组织;这是他们的权利,不管什么情况都要被承认。

2)罢工权。工人说罢工和抗议集会是他们的权利,且它们不受任何情况限制。而且工人罢工期间的工资必须全额付清。

3)涨工资。给工人体面、舒适、人道的居住环境,给每个失业者以合适的失业保险。550美元最低工资的要求在伊朗广为传播。卡尚(Kashan)市的3000名工人,以及费尔沃工厂和萨德拉造船厂的工人已签署要求最低工资的请愿书。克尔曼沙阿(Kermanshah)的金属工人和机械工人工会也加入请愿阵营。很多工业中心的工人仍在签署这份请愿书。

4)付清未付工资。工人要求立即付清拖欠和未付的工资。不给工人所作的工作成果以工资,这必须按照犯罪来对待。雇主和政府都应该为这种光天化日下的抢劫行为负责。

5)伊朗工人要求在工作场所禁止伊斯兰评议会、“工人会社”和工厂保安。他们要求立即停止骚扰、恐吓、逮捕和审问工人活动家。例如过去数月,库尔德斯坦纺织公司的法尔希德·贝赫什第·扎德和谢伊斯·阿玛尼、自由劳工组织建设行动委员会活动家沙迪赫·阿米里、伊朗霍德罗汽车工厂的帕尔维兹·萨拉万德、2004年萨盖兹五一劳动节庆典上的七位活动家和卡尚纺织厂的莫森·哈桑·扎德遭到逮捕和审问,其中一些将受审。

6)伊朗工人要求直接控制和监督工作场所的健康和安全。他们要就禁止旧的、用坏的、不合标准的机器。他们还要求禁止国际上禁止的,对工人健康和福利有危险的物质。工人尤其呼吁要派出国际代表团监视伊朗霍德罗汽车厂的情况,在不到两年内有九名工人在此丧身。

7)伊朗工人反对伊斯兰会议和工人议会的官员和恶棍以伊朗工人代表的名义出席国际劳工协会(ILO)。他们必须逐出该协会和年度会议。


伊斯兰评议会和工人会社试图使今年五一劳动节成为拉夫桑贾尼的竞选集会。12000名工人发现拉夫桑贾尼计划在德黑兰的阿扎迪体育场讲话,为了使庆典成为政府和工人会社的可耻失败而集体离开了体育场。同样在5月9日,伊斯兰评议会和工人会社的流氓,以哈桑·萨德吉和帕尔维兹·艾哈迈迪·潘贾基为头目,袭击了瓦赫德公交驾驶员工会中心,殴打了工会领导并破坏该中心财物。这次野蛮的攻击展示了这些被工人仇恨的组织的真实本质。由于此关系,自由劳工组织建设行动委员会和其他工人组织给国际劳工协会写了抗议信。

这就是伊朗工人当前的一些需要。伊朗工人为更好的生活、福利、表达和组织的自由以及其他她国际上承认的政治权利斗争。

Workers in Iran:
conditions, demands, struggles

By Shahla Danashfer


Workers in Iran have been the target of increasing attacks on their working and living conditions in the past few years. The Government’s own statistics speak of 16 million jobless, including 10 mil-lion young unemployed. This is at a time when each year one million more young workers enter the labour market.  

Thousands of workers have lost their jobs in the last few years, and everyday workers are dismissed without the least benefits.

Replacement of permanent work by two to three-monthly contracts is be-coming a norm in most of the work-places in Iran. Workers with permanent jobs are being fired and the same work-ers or other unemployed workers are being hired as contract workers for the same position with the lowest possible wages and benefits. This is nothing other than open slavery.   

The minimum wage that has been set by the Islamic Republic of Iran is $130 per month, while the official poverty line, announced by the same govern-ment, is $320. For more than one mil-lion workers even this minimum wage has not been paid - some for close to two years. Furthermore, in many work-places workers are being hired as con-tract workers for wages around $65.00 a month.  

This situation has forced workers into selling their body organs, prostitution and child labour, in order to survive. It has led to addiction, suicide, break-up of families and physical and mental destruction.  

The workplaces in Iran are very unsafe, and workers’ representatives are not al-lowed to monitor the health and safety of the workplaces. In Iran Khodro car com-pany alone - one of hundreds of unsafe workplaces in Iran - in the past two years nine workers have lost their lives. In two cases where the young workers in ques-tion did not have any history of illness, their hearts stopped due to excessive work and long working hours.

Workers in Iran are denied the right to free labour organizations, strike, collec-tive bargaining and association. Any attempt to organize is met with perse-cution and repression. To achieve their demands, workers have to protest, and when they do so, they are confronted by the armed forces. Two years ago the police fired into an assembly of striking copper-mine workers in Khatoon Abad, resulting in four workers losing their lives. This past winter striking textile workers of Fomenat were attacked and beaten up by the security forces.

Labour activists have been daily threat-ened, intimidated, detained and interro-gated. Only in the past month Sadegh Amiri, Parviz Salarvand, Mohsen Has-san Zadeh, Roya Doroodi, and many other labour activists have been ar-rested, but have later been released under the pressure of protests.  


Workers are Fighting Back

Workers have not been onlookers to the attacks on their lives and liveli-hood. Protests are daily occurrences in the workplaces in Iran. Today, strikes, picket lines, demonstrations and issuing of ultimatums to the employers and government are be-coming common forms of protest among Iranian workers.  

Protest assemblies in front of gov-ernment offices, growing efforts at organising, holding spectacular May Day rallies all over the coun-try (the largest May Day in the last 26 years in spite of all these activities being illegal), passing resolutions at meetings, putting forward clear demands, making radical and sharp speeches against the conditions, workers taking part in various labour committees and centres, labour activists step-ping forth publicly, writing letters and statements in their own names, workers’ spouses partici-pating in the actions, and so on – these are all aspects of another picture of the Iranian working class today.

In response to the problems they encounter, workers have tried to build up strong solidarity and sup-port both inside Iran and interna-tionally. These efforts have played a major role in strengthen-ing workers’ struggles in the last two years, and occasionally have succeeded in persuading the whole population of a town or city to support their cause, forcing the government and employers to give in to their demands. As an example, in the recent strike by Shahoo workers in the city of Sanandaj we witnessed a broad solidarity movement among the people, including by workers’ families. Also, around 30 workers in one part of Mahshahr petro-chemical plant, in protest against non-payment of wages, built up a powerful movement, forcing the management to pay up the wages owed to workers.

In the current protests, interna-tional solidarity with Iranian workers and supporting their struggle and demands have been even more important. Sending supportive letters to Iranian work-ers and protest letters to the Ira-nian regime, sending delegations to visit the workplaces, supporting labour activists who are being tar-geted, etc., are just a few of the solidarity acts that in the last few years have been taking place, helping the workers in their fight-back.


Workers Immediate Demands

The labour protests in Iran take place mainly around the following issues and demands:

  1) Free labour organisations, independ-ent of the government. Workers say they do not need permission from the government to set up their own organi-zations; it is their right, which must be recognized without any conditions whatsoever.

  2) The right to strike. Workers say strikes and protest gatherings are their right and they must be free of any con-ditions or restrictions. Also, the wages for the days workers spend on strike must be paid in full.

  3) Pay rise. A decent, comfortable and humane living condition for workers, and adequate unemployment insurance to every unemployed person. The call for a minimum wage of at least $550.00 is  widespread among the workers in Iran. 3,000 workers in the city of Kashan, and also workers of Filver factory and Sadra shipbuilders have signed a petition demanding that minimum wage. The Metalworkers and Mechanics Union of Kermanshah have also joined the petition campaign. The petition is still being signed by workers of various industrial centres.

  4) Payment of unpaid wages. Workers demand that their delayed or unpaid wages be paid immediately. Not paying workers for the work they have done must be treated as a crime. Both the employers and the government are re-sponsible for this daylight robbery.

  5) Workers of Iran demand that groups such as Islamic Councils (Shora-ye Eslami), Workers’ House (Khane-ye Kargar) and the Security of the facto-ries (Herasat) be banned from the workplaces. They demand an immedi-ate end to harassment, threatening, ar-rest and interrogation of labour activ-ists. For instance in the past few months, Farshid Beheshti Zad and Sheis Amani from Kurdistan Textile company, Sadegh Amiry, an activist of the Follow-up Committee for the For-mation of Free Workers’ Organiza-tions, Parviz Salarvand, a worker from Iran Khodro car plant, seven activists from the city of Saqez 2004 May Day celebration, and Mohsen Hassan Zadeh from Kashan Textile have been arrested and interrogated, and some have been put on trial.

  6) Workers of Iran demand direct con-trol and monitoring of health and safety in their workplaces. They demand a ban on old, worn-out and substandard ma-chines. They also demand a ban on hazardous substances that are already banned internationally, and which are endangering workers’ health and well-being. Workers are especially calling for an international body of delegates to be sent to monitor the situation in Iran Khodro car plant, where in less than two years nine workers have lost their lives.

  7) Workers of Iran object to the pres-ence of Islamic Council and Workers’ House officials and thugs at the meet-ings of the International Labour Or-ganization (ILO) in the name of Iranian workers’ representatives. They must be thrown out of the ILO and its annual conferences.

Workers’ House and Islamic Councils tried to use this year’s May Day as a presidential campaign for Rafsanjani. 12,000 workers left Azadi stadium in Tehran when they found out that Raf-sanjani was scheduled to speak there, turning the event into a fiasco for the government and the Workers’ House. Also on May 9 this year, Workers’ House and Islamic Council hooligans, with Hassan Sadeghi and Parviz Ahmadi Panjaki as ringleaders, at-tacked Vahed Bus Drivers’ Union cen-tre, beating up its leaders and wrecking the centre and its property. This bar-baric attack shows the true nature of these organisations, which are rightly hated by workers. In this connection, the Follow-up Committee for the For-mation of Free Workers’ Organizations and other workers’ groups have written protest letters to the ILO.   

These are some of the immediate de-mands of workers in Iran. Workers in Iran fight for a better life, for welfare, for freedom of expression and organisa-tion, and other political rights recog-nized internationally.

马赫沙尔石化厂超过一千工人签署550美元最低工资请愿书

最初由卡尚纺织厂超过三千名工人发布和签署的550美元最低工资请愿书在近几周内已由工人活动家传到马赫沙尔石化厂,到目前已有超过一千名工人签字。在这之前,贝赫沙尔(Behshahr)的萨德拉造船厂工人和超过600名克尔曼沙阿多个工厂的工人在请愿书上签字。此外费尔沃工厂工人此前由于同样要求而罢工。萨南达季的沙霍铝厂工人和克尔曼沙阿电工和机械工人工会通过决议支持该请愿。马赫沙尔石化厂超过一千工人对请愿的支持是550美元最低工资运动的巨大成功。

More than one thousand petrochemical workers of
Mahshahr signed $550.00 minimum wage petition


The petition for a minimum wage of not less than $550.00, which ini-tially was issued and signed by more than 3,000 textile workers of the city of Kashan, in the last few weeks, has been distributed among workers of Mahshahr Petrochemical Complex via its labour activists, where so far more than one thou-sand workers have singed it. Prior to this, workers of Sadra Shipbuild-ing in Behshahr and more than 600 workers of various industries in Kermanshah had signed the peti-tion. Furthermore, workers of Filver factory had gone on strike with the same demand before. Workers of Shaho and Alumin in Sanandaj and Electrician and Metalworkers of Kermanshah Union had passed a resolution supporting this petition. The support for the petition by one thousand petrochemical workers of Mahshahr is a huge success to the $550.00 Minimum Wage campaign.

伊朗政权因拘押劳工活动家受到压力


在两名劳工活动家:伊朗的Sadegh Amiri先生和Parviz Salarvand最近被拘留之后,伊朗工人共产党国外委员会(Worker-communist Party of Iran Committee Abroad)书记Kazem Nik-Khah给自由工会国际联盟(International Confederation of Free Trade Unions,ICFTU) 总书记Guy Ryder写了一封信(该信已刊登在最近一期的《伊朗工人》上),要求该组织帮助使这两个劳工活动家获释。与此同时,伊朗工人共产党国际劳工团结委员会(the International Labour Solidarity Committee of the Worker-communist Party of Iran)成员联系了各工人组织请求他们抗议两名劳工活动家的被拘。我们已经收到如下人士提交伊朗总统Mohammad Khatami的抗议信的副本:Fred Muzin,不列颠哥伦比亚医院雇员联盟(British Colombia’s Hospital Employees’ Union)主席;Kenneth Georgetti,加拿大劳工大会(the Canadian Labour Congress)主席;Marcello Malentacchi, 国际金属工人联合会(International Metalworkers’ Federation)总书记;Deborah Bourque, 加拿大邮政工人工会(Canadian Union of Postal Workers)全国主席;Jorid Tveita,来自挪威酒店和餐馆工人联盟(the Norwegian Hotel and Restaurants Workers Union);Anderias Hyden,来自不来梅社会主义民主党(Bremen Socialist–Democratic Party)。

Fred Muzin在他的信中写道:“我代表医院雇员联盟的4.3万成员写这封信要求释放两名被拘的伊朗劳工活动家。”他补充说:“他们都是因为维护工人的基本权利和抗议侵权行为而被捕的。这种严厉的恐吓和骚扰战术是完全不能接受的,并损害了你的政府的声誉。”他以如下的话结束他的信:“我们敦促你确保Mr. Amiri先生和Salarvand先生立即获释,保证他们的安全和福利。我们也鼓励贵国政府承认和尊重人权,允许所有工人能自由公平地集体谈判。”

Kenneth Georgetti先生在他的信中写道: “我代表加拿大劳工大会的300万会员(再次)写信抗议贵国发生的严重侵害工人的事件。”他补充说:“我们获知伊朗Khodro汽车建造公司的一名工人Parviz Salarvand先生的被拘和‘失踪’。该公司的管理系统已迫使工人接受更高的产量,那里的工人在抗议工作条件的恶化。工人们不被允许成立自己的工会组织,许多人目前是被临时聘请——这使他们没有资格获得固定雇员享有的好处。据自由工会国际联盟和其他来源,管理层宣布扣除他们新年奖金并宣布了固定员工和临时合同工之间的不平等待遇。”Georgetti先生还写道:“此外,2005年5月9日,分属伊朗‘工人之家’(Iranian Workers’ House,Khaneh Kargar )和德黑兰Vahed公共汽车公司的‘Islamic Shora’组织的300多人袭击了这家公司的工会筹建委员会的一次会议。这次会议当时正在面包工人协会(Bakery Workers’ Association)的场所进行。我们被告知,筹建委员会的10名成员受到攻击,攻击者还拆毁了工会的场所,打碎了门窗,撕毁文件,并摧毁了藏书。”他补充说:“所有这一切都是在安全部队在场时发生的,安全部队甚至拍摄了此事件。……一些袭击者拿着如‘伪君子去死'和‘工会,Taghout(宗教语,指叛教者——译者注)的避难所’之类的标语,后者是一个著名的前君主政体的用语。”在另一段,Georgetti先生写道:“在加拿大劳工大会同ICFTU一起谴责这些新近的暴力事件。不幸的是,有关侵犯伊朗劳工权利,我们有太多的机会写信给你。在20世纪80年代初中期,所有的独立劳工组织被政府和工人之家(Workers’ House)和伊斯兰劳工委员会(the Islamic labour councils)的现任领导层暴力袭击并关闭了。自那时以来伊朗政府不承认也不让工人成立独立组织,而这是一种国际公认的基本权利。相反,贵国政府一直支持‘工人之家’和‘伊斯兰劳工委员会’作为控制和镇丫伊朗独立劳工运动的一种手段。作为国际劳工组织(International Labour Organization,ILO)的一个成员,伊朗有义务尊重并执行体现在第87和98号协议(Conventions 87 and 98)中的基本原则,即结社自由和集体谈判的权利。”他总结说:“因此我们敦促您,主席先生,下令立即、无条件地释放Parviz Salarvand先生,下令调查此事件,并务必确保能举行和平与合法的工会会议,这样工人就可以自由地成立独立组织且不受国家、‘工人之家’、‘伊斯兰委员会’、安全部队或情报人员的任何干扰。”

Marcello Malentacchi写道:“代表世界各地数以百万计的成员,国际金属工人联合会呼吁贵国政府立即从德黑兰的Evin监狱释放Parviz Salarvand先生,并要求Iran Khodro的管理层停止对该公司雇员的所有恐吓和骚扰。Parviz Salarvand先生因行使言论自由,支持国际公认的工人和工会的权利而被不公正地逮捕和拘押。贵国政府与公司管理层,已用严重侵害基本的人权和工人权利回应了他的“雇员受到不平等和不公正待遇”的谴责。Iran Khodro的工人长期忍受着有害和危险的工作条件,这在最近几年已经带来了许多工伤和死亡。许多工人被剥夺了公平的报酬,并面对着与临时雇用和合同雇用相联系的持续的不安。”

Deborah Bourque写道: “我代表5.5万成员的加拿大邮政工人工会 写信给您,以抗议发生在伊朗伊斯兰共和国的对工人权利进一步的严重侵害。”她补充道:“5月5日,为了在伊朗伊斯兰共和国成立自由劳工组织勇敢地工作的劳工活动者Sadegh Amiri先生在其工作地点被捕。此后在世界各地工会的压力下,他已经被保释出狱。然而,贵国政府正在试图用捏造的‘危害国家安全’和‘发布非法传单’的罪名指控他。加拿大邮政工人工会意识到,此类指控在在过去已经导致许多伊朗人被长期囚禁,甚至处死。Amiri先生正被陷害,因为他是自由劳工组织建设行动委员会的积极支持者,也是今年德黑兰劳动节庆典的组织者。”她还写道:“2005年5月9日,分属伊朗‘工人之家’和德黑兰Vahed公共汽车公司的‘Islamic Shora’组织的300多人袭击了该公共汽车公司的工会筹建委员会的一次会议。委员会的10个成员受到攻击,其中一名成员Mansour Ossaniou先生被蓄意打成重伤。会议所在的面包工人协会的场地被严重损坏。所有这一切都是在安全部队在场时发生的,他们甚至拍摄了此事件,同时没收了伊朗通讯社(the ISNA news agency)和新闻报纸的记者的摄像机和录音机。”

Jorid Tveita写道: “我们已被告知,劳工活动家Sadegh Amiri先生和Parviz Salarvand先生在伊朗已被非法关押。如果事实如此,我们要敦促伊朗政府调查这一情况,并采取必要的措施以确保没有劳动积极分子未经正当程序被拘留。我们还敦促伊朗政府确保劳工活动家不受政府机构骚扰,从而他们可以平和地工作,改善伊朗劳动者的条件,改善伊朗社会。”

不来梅社会主义民主党的Anderias Hyden写道:“我们获知,最近劳工活动家Sadegh Amiri先生和Parviz Salarvand先生因捍卫工人权利而被关押。我们谴责拘留劳工积极分子,并要求立即无条件地释放他们。伊朗是国际劳工组织的成员国,有义务尊重和执行体现在公约中的基本原则。我们正在密切注视对工人积极分子的骚扰,并坚信伊朗伊斯兰共和国没有任何权利如此对待工人积极分子。在伊朗的工人也有权为他们的要求而斗争。”

其他一些工会组织也对伊朗当局发出了抗议信。

随着对伊朗伊斯兰共和国的国际压力的增长,当局宣布于5月16 日释放Sadegh Amiri。Amiri先生已经以5亿Toman(大约55,000美元)巨款保释出狱。他的被释无疑是伊朗工人的一个重要胜利。然而,争取撤销对他的所有指控的努力必须持续下去。我们真诚地感谢上述组织的声援,同时我们鼓励所有劳工组织保持他们对伊朗政权的压力,谴责其对伊朗劳工活动家的虐待和骚扰。

Iranian regime under pressure for detaining labour activists


Following the recent detention of two labour activists, Mr. Sadegh Amiri and Parviz Salarvand in Iran, Kazem Nik-Khah, secretary of the Worker-communist Party of Iran – Committee Abroad, wrote a letter (published in the last issue of Workers in Iran) to Mr. Guy Ryder, general secretary of the International Confederation of Free Trade Unions (ICFTU), asking for that organization’s help to gain the release of these two labour activists. At the same time, members of the International Labour Solidarity Committee of the Worker-communist Party of Iran contacted various workers’ organizations, asking for their protest against the detention of these two labour activists. We have received copies of protest letters to the Iranian president, Mohammad Khatami, from Fred Muzin, President of British Colombia’s Hospital Employees’ Union, Kenneth Georgetti, President of the Canadian Labour Congress, Marcello Malentacchi, General Secretary of International Metalworkers’ Federation, Deborah Bourque, National President of Canadian Union of Postal Workers, Jorid Tveita from the Norwegian Hotel and Restaurants Workers Union, and Anderias Hyden from Bremen Socialist–Democratic Party.

Fred Muzin in his letter writes: “I am writing on behalf of the 43,000 members of the Hospital Employee’s Union to ask for the release of two Iranian labour activists who have been detained.” He adds: “These men have both been arrested for defending fundamental workers’ rights and speaking out against abuses. These heavy-handed intimidation and harassment tactics are completely unacceptable and are a tarnish to your government’s reputation.” He ends his letter: “We urge you to ensure that Mr. Amiri and Mr. Salarvand are immediately released and that their safety and welfare is assured. We also encourage your government to recognize and respect human rights and allow free and fair collective bargaining for all workers.”

Mr. Kenneth Georgetti in his letter writes: “On behalf of the three million members of the Canadian Labour Congress, I am writing to protest, yet again, at the serious violations of workers’ occurring in your country.” He adds: “We have learned of the detention and ‘disappearance’ of Mr. Parviz Salarvand, a worker at the Iran Khodro automobile construction company. Workers there have been protesting the deteriorating working conditions at the company as management has systematically been pressuring the workers to obtain higher output. The workers are not allowed to form their own trade union organization and many of them are currently being hired on a temporary basis which makes them ineligible for the benefits that permanent employees enjoy. According to the International Confederation of Free Trade Unions (IFCTU) and other sources, management announced the deduction of their new year’s bonuses and proclaimed the unequal treatment of permanent and temporary contract workers.” Mr. Georgetti also writes: “In addition, on May 9, 2005 more that 300 men of the Iranian Workers’ House (Khaneh Kargar) and of the Islamic Shora of the Vahed Bus Company in Tehran attacked a meeting of the founding committee of this company’s workers’ union. This meeting was taking place on the premises of the Bakery Workers’ Association. We have been informed that ten members of the founding committee were attacked and that the attackers also tore down the union’s premises, smashed doors and windows, tore up documents, and destroyed library books.” He added: “All of this was carried out in the presence of security forces who even filmed the event. … Some of the attackers held placards with slogans such as ‘death to hypocrites’ and ‘trade unions, a refuge of Taghout’, the latter being a known reference to the previous monarchy.” In another paragraph, Mr. Georgetti writes: “The Canadian Labour Congress joins with the ICFTU in denouncing these violent recent incidents. Unfortunately, we had all too many occasions to write to you concerning labour rights violations in Iran. During the early to mid 1980’s, all independent labour organizations were violently attacked and shut down by the government and the current leadership of Workers’ House and the Islamic labour councils. The Iranian government since then has not recognized nor allowed workers to organize themselves into organizations of their choice which is an internationally recognized fundamental right. Instead, your government has been supporting the Workers’ House and the Islamic labour councils as an instrument for the control and suppression of an independent labour movement in Iran. As a member of the International Labour Organization (ILO), Iran is under an obligation to respect and enforce the fundamental principles enshrined in Conventions 87 and 98 on the right to freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining.” He concludes his letter: “We therefore urge you, Mr. President, to order the immediate and unconditional release of Mr. Parviz Salarvand, to order an investigation into this incident, and to see to it that peaceful and legitimate union meetings can occur so that workers are free to form their own organizations without any interference by the state, the Workers’ House, the Islamic Councils or the security and intelligent forces.”

Marcello Malentacchi writes: “On behalf of millions of our members worldwide, the international Metalworkers’ Federation calls on your government to immediately release Mr. Parviz Salarvand from Evin Prison in Tehran, and demands that the management at Iran Khodro halts all intimidation and harassment of the company’s employees. Mr. Parviz Salarvand has been unjustly arrested and detained for exercising the freedom of speech in support of internationally recognized worker and trade union rights. Your government along with company management has responded to his denunciation of the unequal and unfair treatment of employees with repressive violation of fundamental human and worker rights. Workers at Iran Khodro have long endured hazardous and dangerous working conditions that have resulted in many workplace injuries and deaths in recent years. Many workers are denied equitable payment of benefits and face continued insecurity associated with temporary and contract terms of employment.”

Deborah Bourque writes: “I am writing to you to protest, on behalf of the 55,000 members of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW), further serious violations of workers’ rights occurring in the Islamic Republic of Iran.” She adds: “On May 5, Mr. Sadegh Amiri, a labour activist who has courageously worked for the formation of free labour organizations in the Islamic Republic, was arrested at his workplace. He has since been released on bail following pressure from trade unions around the world. However, your government is attempting to charge him with trumped-up charges of “actions against national security” and “publication of illegal leaflets”. CUPW is aware that such charges in the past have lead to long prison terms and even execution for many Iranians. Mr. Amiri is being framed because he is an active supporter of the Follow-Up Committee for the Formation of Free Labour Organizations and the organizer of a May Day ceremony in Tehran.” She also writes: “On May 9, 2005, more than 300 men from the Iranian Workers’ House (Khaneh Kargar) and from the Islamic Shora of the Vahed Bus Company brutally attacked a meeting of the founding committee of the bus company’s workers’ union. Ten members of the founding committee were attacked and one member, Mr. Mansour Ossaniou, was deliberately seriously injured. The premises of the Bakery Workers Association, where the meeting was being held, was badly damaged. All of this took place in the presence of security forces, who even filmed the event themselves while confiscating press cameras and tape recorders from the ISNA news agency and newspaper reporters.”

Jorid Tveita writes: “We have been informed that labour activists Mr. Sadegh Amiri and Mr. Parviz Salarvand have been illegally detained in Iran. If this is the case we would like to urge the Iranian government to investigate this situation, and take the necessary measurements to ensure that no labour activists are detained without due process. We also urge that the Iranian government make sure that labour activists are not harassed by government agencies, and that they can work in peace to better the conditions for Iranian workers and therefore better the Iranian society.”

Anderias Hyden of Bremen Socialist– Democratic Party writes: “We have been informed that recently labour activists Sadegh Amiri and Parviz Salarvand, for defending workers rights have been detained. We condemn detention of labour activists and ask for their immediate and unconditional release. Iran is a member of the ILO and is under the obligation to respect and enforce the fundamental principles enshrined in its conventions. We are closely following the harassing of the workers’ activists, and believe that Islamic Republic of Iran doesn’t have any right to treat workers’ activists in this way. In Iran too, workers have right to fight for their demands.”

A number of other labour organizations have also sent protest letter to Iranian authorities.

As international pressure on the Islamic Republic mounted, the authorities announced the release on May 16th of Sadegh Amiri. Mr. Amiri has been released on a hefty 50 million Toman bail (around US$55,000). His release no doubt is an important victory for Iranian workers. However, the efforts to get all charges against him dropped must continue. While extending our sincere thanks to the organizations mentioned above for their solidarity, we urge all labour organizations to keep up their pressure on the Iranian regime, denouncing its mistreatment and harassment of Iranian labour activists.

被捕工人获释了!


《伊朗工人》刚刚获知,因劳工活动而被伊朗警卫队拘捕了一个多月的Iran Khodro汽车制造厂工人Parviz Salarvand先生现已获释。在一场争取使其获释的国际性运动发动起来之后,他与另一位被捕工人Sadegh Amiri先生(见前文:伊朗政权因拘捕劳工活动者而面临压力)一同出狱。在这次运动中,世界各地的劳工组织高度关注拘捕事件,并向伊朗政府发出抗议信要求立即释放劳工活动者。

自由劳工组织建设行动委员会(the Follow-Up Committee for the Formation of Free Labour Organisation)的成员及代表,今年德黑兰劳动节庆典的组织者Sadegh Amiri先生也已被释放。他被保释出狱,目前仍处于被诬告的危险中。

五月中旬, 伊朗工人共产党国外委员会(Worker-communist Party of Iran Committee Abroad) 书记Kazem Nik-Khah继续写信给自由工会国际联盟(International Confederation of Free Trade Unions,ICFTU) 总书记Guy Ryder以及世界各地工会,继他早些时候的信件之后,告知他们关于被捕的伊朗劳工活动者的最新情况。Nik-Khah写道:

“近日我曾就伊朗劳工活动者的被捕给您写过信。我很高兴告诉您,据自由劳工组织建设行动委员会(the Follow-Up Committee for the Formation of Free Labour Organisation)的消息,被拘工人之一的Sadegh Amiri已经获释。他在昨天(五月16日,星期一)以5亿Toman(大约55,000美元)保释出狱。毫无疑问,如果没有伊朗和世界各地的工人及劳工组织的行动,Sadegh Amiri现在还在狱中。然而,政府现在想诬告他犯有“危害国家安全罪”和“发布非法传单罪”,使其受审。此类指控在伊斯兰政权下将带来重罚。在过去的25年中,数以千计的人因这类控告而被判长期囚禁,甚至处死。Sadegh Amiri是自由劳工组织建设行动委员会的成员及代表,今年德黑兰劳动节庆典的组织者。这就是他的罪过。伊朗政权想陷害他以去除这个眼中钉”。

“我请求您继续对伊斯兰共和国施压,支持工人们组织、罢工、举行劳动节集会和开展劳工活动的权利,并同时要求释放Parviz Salarvand,撤销对Sadegh Amiri的起诉。正如您所知,在伊朗,这些权利每天都遭到政府的侵犯。”

《伊朗工人》祝贺Salarvand先生和Amiri先生的亲属和同事,祝贺每一个参与运动并努力使这些劳工活动者获释的人。争取撤销对Amiri先生的所有指控之运动将继续进行。

Detained workers released!  


Workers in Iran has just learnt that Mr Parviz Salarvand, a worker at Iran Khodro car plant, who had been detained for over a month by the security forces in Iran for labour activities, has been released. This comes in the wake of an international campaign launched to gain his release, as well as that of Mr Sadegh Amiri, a second detained worker (see above: Iranian regime under pressure for detaining labour activists). During this campaign, labour organisations from around the world highlighted the cases and wrote protest letters to the government in Iran, demanding the activists’ immediate release.

Mr Sadegh Amiri, a member and representative of the “Follow-Up Committee for the Formation of Free Labour Organisations” and the organiser of a May Day ceremony in Tehran this year, has also been released. He was released on bail and is still in danger of being prosecuted on fabricated charges.

In mid-May, Kazem Nik-Khah, secretary of the Worker-communist Party of Iran - Committee Abroad, wrote to Mr Guy Ryder, general secretary of the International Confederation of Free Trade Unions (ICFTU), as well as to unions around the world, updating them on the condition of arrested Iranian labour activists, following his earlier letter. Mr Nik-Khah writes:

“I wrote to you recently about the arrest of two labour activists in Iran. I am pleased to let you know that, according to the Follow-Up Committee for the Formation of Free Labour Organisations, one of these workers, Sadegh Amiri, has been released. He was released yesterday (Monday May 16th) on bail in the amount of 50 million Toman (around $55,000). There is no doubt that had it not been for the action of workers and labour organisations in Iran and around the world, Sadegh Amiri would still be in prison. However, the government wants to put him on trial on the trumped up charges of ‘actions against national security’ and ‘publication of illegal leaflets’. Such charges can carry heavy penalties under the Islamic regime. In the past 25 years, thousands of people have been sentenced to long prison terms or even executed under precisely such charges. Sadegh Amiri is a member and representative of the Follow- Up Committee and the organiser of a May Day ceremony in Tehran this year. This is what he is guilty of. The regime wants to get him out of the way by framing him”.

“I would like to request that you keep up the pressure on the Islamic Republic in support of workers’ right to organise and strike, hold May Day rallies and carry out labour activities, demanding the release of Parviz Salarvand and the dropping of the charges against Sadegh Amiri. As you know, these rights are violated by the government in Iran on a daily basis.”

Workers in Iran congratulates Mr Salarvand’s and Mr Amiri’s family and colleagues and everyone who campaigned and worked hard to gain the release of these labour activists. The campaign for the dropping of all charges against Mr Amiri continues.

伊斯兰共和国必须被国际劳工组织除名!

  今年五月三十日到六月十五日国际劳工组织(ILO)将召开年会;而每年国际劳工组织在年会上都会邀请伊朗伊斯兰共和国代表。尽管伊朗的工人示威和动荡日益增加,它仍然接受和承认政权设立并操纵的机构如工人之家和伊斯兰委员会为“伊朗工人组织”。

  这是就是我们声明的主题。去年伊朗工人共产党国际劳工团结委员会的代表在国际劳工组织年会上向与会者指出了这一点。巴赫拉姆·索罗什(Bahram Soroush)是该组的演讲人,他代表伊朗的工人们——瓦海德(Vahed)公司的工人、伊朗霍德罗集团(Khodro)的工人,还代表所有反对对伊斯兰共和国出席这次会议的伊朗工人,在一次历史性的行动中抓住了机会,向与会者发表演说。在这次会议上,工人的代表——伊朗工人共产主义党要求无条件释放曼苏尔·奥桑洛(Mansoor Osanloo)并将伊朗伊斯兰共和国逐出国际劳工组织。

  我们要求伊朗伊斯兰共和国必须被国际劳工组织和其他的国际权威机构除名。今年我们也将聚集于国际劳工组织年会以抗议伊斯兰共和国代表的出席以及伊斯兰委员会和工人之家的使者的出席。在我们看来,不仅这些伊朗工人镇丫者必须被禁止参加国际权威机构,而且他们也必须为其针对伊朗工人的暴行而被起诉。

  我们正在号召全世界的工人组织加入我们的反抗。与我们一同要求把伊斯兰共和国及其工人委员会赶出国际劳工组织,并谴责该政权对工人基本权利的压制。目前,该政权监禁着因组织庆祝国际劳动节以及捍卫工人权利而获罪的三名工人积极分子,沙伊斯·阿玛尼(Shaice Amani)、塞迪克·卡里米(Sediq Karimi)和马哈穆德·萨勒希(Mahmood Salehi)。曼苏尔·奥桑洛也因卷入工人斗争获判五年监禁。我们期待今年会议上最紧急的议题之一将是无条件释放这些工人,并撤销伊朗伊斯兰共和国对这些积极分子的虚假指控。

  工人镇丫者出席在国际劳工会议上,我们保证这将是一个大丑闻。我们再次号召全世界工人组织支持伊朗工人以及他们的斗争和要求;并支持我们把伊斯兰共和国及其工人委员会赶出国际劳工组织的要求。

Islamic Republic must be expelled from
the International Labour Organization!

This year International Labour Organization, ILO, will hold its annual convention from May 30th to June 15th; and every year ILO hosts representatives of Islamic Republic of Iran in its annual convention. Despite growing workers protests and unrests in Iran, it has been accepting and legitimizing puppets of regime made organs such as Workers’ House and Islamic Councils as “Iranian workers organizations”.

This is the very subject of our protestation. Last year representatives of the International Labour Solidarity committee of the Worker-communist Party of Iran at the annual ILO convention pointed out this to the participants of the convention. Bahram Soroush the speaker of this group, and representing workers of Iran, the workers of Vahed Company and workers of Iran Khodro and representing all the Iranian workers that objected to the Islamic Republic’s presence at this convention, in a his toric move took the opportunity and addressed the participants of the convention. In this convention, Representatives of Worker-communist Party of Iran demanded unconditional release of Mansoor Osanloo and the expulsion of Islamic Republic of Iran from the ILO.

We demand that Islamic Republic of Iran must be expelled from ILO and other international authorities. This year too we are going to gather at the ILO annual convention to protest the presence of representatives of Islamic Republic and the presence of messengers of Islamic Councils and Workers’ House. In our opinion, not only these suppressors of Iranian workers have to be banned from attending international authorities, but also they must be indicted for their brutality against workers of Iran.

We are calling on workers organizations worldwide to join us in this protest. Join us in our demand to expel the Islamic Republic and its Workers’ House from ILO; and to condemn this regime for its suppression of workers basic rights. At this moment, this regime has jailed 3 worker’s activists, Shice Amani, Sediq Karimi, and Mahmood Salehi for organizing May Day, and defending workers’ rights. Mansoor Osanloo is also being sentenced to 5 years imprisonment for getting involved in workers’ struggle. We expect that at this year’s convention, one of the most urgent issues will be the unconditional release of these workers, and removal of bogus charges brought up against these activist by Islamic Republic of Iran.

We guarantee that the presence of suppressors of workers in international gatherings to be a major infamy. Once more, we call upon workers’ organization worldwide to support Iranian workers, their struggle, demands; and to support our demand to expel Islamic Republic and its Workers’ House for ILO.

伊朗霍德罗集团工人抗议伊斯兰政权出席国际劳工组织会议

“伊朗霍德罗集团”工人致国际劳工组织(ILO)秘书长科万·索马维亚(Khovan Somavia)先生

亲爱的秘书长:

  我有必要告知您,作为伊朗工人的代表而受邀参加国际劳工组织全体会议的那些人并非真正的工人代表,理由如下:

一、选择这些人作为伊朗工人的代表违反了98年和87年的国际劳工组织会议,当时您担任秘书长。按当时会议决定,工人有权在自由的选举中选出自己的代表,政府无权干涉建立自由的工人组织的程序。这些个人为政府所指定并代表伊朗雇主,不可能为伊朗工人做任何事。

二、在伊朗任何形式的独立和自由的劳工组织都是非法的并被视为犯罪。我们为之工作的伊朗霍德罗集团公司有超过十万人,其中四万在中央公司工作,在同一屋檐下工作,却没有一个哪怕被政府控制的劳工组织。

三、伊朗工人,尤其像伊朗霍德罗集团的工人,丧失了拥有任何劳工组织的权利。任何建立一个组织的尝试都会立刻遭到解雇,组织的代表则会被逮捕和监禁。瓦海德公共汽车公司的工人就是例子。

四、伊朗政府和伊朗伊斯兰共和国劳工部,受您邀请作为伊朗工人代表出席国际劳工组织全体会议;但他们反对建立任何形式的工人组织。伊朗劳工部并不在乎人权甚至它自己的成文法规。他们竭力阻止在伊朗进行劳工组织选举。

五、伊朗政府动用安全部队阻止工人实现其权利。他们阻止罢工、工人聚会;并使罢工参加者失去他/她的工作,逮捕乃至监禁他们。这样的一个例子是,在过去一年中数十名伊朗霍德罗集团和伊朗霍德罗柴油机公司的工人被解雇。现在解雇和失业工人的代表仍在狱中。

六、因为伊朗工人没有劳工组织和公民自由,他们丧失了基本权利和薪水;而且现在伊朗百分之八十的工人依照合同或固定工作的日薪工作。他们无权表达他们对合同的意见,不得不在空头合同上签名(因此任由老板摆布)。这很明显地违反了国际劳工组织会议的规定。

亲爱的先生:

  在这样一个其工人丧失了任何类型的他们自己组织的国家里,一些个人怎样并按照何种法律可以作为“工人代表”参加国际劳工组织会议?

  我们,伊朗霍德罗集团工人,认为您把这些个人当作“伊朗工人的代表”予以接受,忽视了国际劳工组织法律尤其违反了九八年和八七年的会议。

  我们,伊朗霍德罗集团工人不认可这些个人为我们的合法代表并要求将其赶出国际劳工组织会议。

  我们请您以明显违反国际劳工组织书面协议为由谴责伊朗政府,这些违反包括解雇要求基本权利的工人以及逮捕并监禁他们的代表。我们请您立即敦促伊朗释放所有被捕工人并取消对其的任何警方监控。

亲爱的先生:

  我们希望国际劳工组织和作为其秘书长的您赞同这样一份为其成员作出的,坚持特别是九八年和八七年的国际劳工组织基本书面协定的决议。这么做将是对工人的慷慨支持,帮助他们自由地建立起自己的劳工组织并选举出真正的代表来参加国际劳工组织会议。

Iran Khodro workers protest
Islamic Regime’s presence at the ILO Convention

From: “Iran Khodro” Workers To: Secretary of International Labour Organization, Mr. Khovan Soamavia

Dear Secretary,
It is necessary to inform you that those who have been invited to the ILO general assembly as Iranian workers’ representatives, are not who they are supposed to be, here are the following reasons:
1- Choosing these people as Iranian workers’ representatives are against the 98 and 87 ILO conventions, which you are its general secretary of. According to these conventions, workers have the right to elect their own representatives in a free election, and states have no right to interfere in the process of establishing free workers’ organizations. These individuals are appointed by the government and represent the employers in Iran and have nothing to do with the workers of Iran.
2- In Iran having any form of independent and free labour organisation is illegal and is considered to be a crime. Iran Khodro, the company in which we work for, has over 100,000 personnel, 40,000 of whom work in the central company and work under one roof but have no labour organisation or even a government-controlled organisation.
3- Iranian workers, especially like workers of Iran Khodro, are deprived of having any labour organisation. Any one attempting to set up an organisation is sacked immediately and the representatives of the organisation are arrested and jailed. An example of this is the case of the Vahed Bus companyworkers.
4- The Iranian government and the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Labour department, which you have invited as representatives of us, the workers in Iran, to ILO’s general assembly, are against the establishment of any form of workers’organizations. Iranian Labour departments do not consider human rights and even any of its own written law. They prevent any effort to organize elections for labour organizations in Iran.
5-The Iranian government with its security forces prevent workers from achieving their rights. They prevent strikes, workers gatherings; and participants in the strikes loses his/her job, arrested, and imprisoned. An example of this is the sacking of dozens of Iran Khodro and Iran Khodro Diesel workers during the past year. Also now the representatives of the dismissed and unemployed workers are in prison.
6- Since the workers of Iran do not have labour organisations and civil freedoms, they are deprived of their basic rights and wages; and right now 80% of Iranian workers are working on contracts or on daily wages when in permanent jobs. They have no right to express an opinion on their contract and on that basis give in to signing 'blank cheques'. And this clearly contravenes the conventions of the International Labour Organization.

Dear Sir,
In such a country that its workers are deprived of any type of their own organization, how and in what law do some individuals participate in the ILO assembly as “worker representatives”?
We, the “Iran Khodro” workers, consider your acceptance of these individuals as “Iranian Workers’ Representatives” as neglecting the ILO Laws specially contravening conventions of 98 & 87.
We, “Iran Khodro” Workers do not consider these individuals as our rightful representatives and demand for their expulsion from the ILO meeting.
We are asking you to condemn the Iranian Government for obvious violations of the ILO written agreements, these violations include laying off workers for asking their basic rights and arresting and imprison ments of their representatives. We ask you to demand immediate freedom of all poisoned workers and cancellation of any police surveillance against them in Iran.

Dear Sir,
We hope that the ILO and you as its General Secretary approve such a resolution that it insists on the fundamental ILO written agreements specially 97 & 87 for its members. Doing that provides an open hand for workers to establish their own free labour organizations and elect real representatives to send to the next ILO assembly.

反对伊朗伊斯兰共和国出席国际劳工组织的声明

伊朗伊斯兰共和国部分反工人罪行一瞥


  当国际劳工组织(ILO)年会正在举行而且伊斯兰政权及其伊斯兰委员会和工人之家的代理人出席于此的时候,值得看一些那压制工人权利及其斗争的沉重事实。

一。二〇〇七年国际劳动节,十三名工人积极分子,(一)沙伊斯·阿玛尼,全国解雇和失业工人联合会会长,(二)塞迪克·卡里米,相同组织的联合会成员,(三)卡勒德·瑟瓦里(Khaled Sevari),联合会副会长,(四)艾克巴尔·拉提菲(Eqbal Latifi),(五)亚多拉·莫拉迪(Yadolla Moradi),(六)纳杰梅丁·拉贾比(Najmehdin Rajabi),(七)法鲁克·加维利(Farooq Gavili),(八)安瓦·梅法克里(Anvar Mefakheri),(九)塞迪克·阿姆贾迪(Sediq Amjadi),(十)哈比伯拉·科尔卡尼(Habibolla Kelkani),(十一)莫夏丁·拉贾比(Mohiadin Rajabi),(十二)塞迪克·索巴尼(Sediq Sobhani),(十三)泰布·切塔尼(Tayb Chetani),他们因参与庆祝国际劳动节而被捕。被捕工人中的十一人交保后获释,但沙伊斯·阿玛尼和塞迪克·卡里米仍被拘留。被捕工人将受到开庭审讯。

二。攻击的又一波新浪潮开始于阿富汗移民工人。安全部队在任意地和没有预先通知的情况下出现于工场和其它工地以追捕阿富汗工人并施之以极度的暴力。他们甚至被丢下脚手架。一名阿富汗移民工人丧生于其中一起残暴攻击。

三。二〇〇七年四月九日,马哈穆德·萨勒希,萨盖兹(Saqez)市一名劳工积极分子,遭到逮捕,被抓进并关押于萨南达杰市(Sanandaj)监狱。

四。曼苏尔·奥桑洛,瓦海德公共汽车工会主席,在今年三月革命法庭庭审中,以一项“危害治安”的虚假指控获判四年监禁;还以一项“反政权宣传”的指控加判一年监禁。

五。教师为争取基本权利而进行的斗争在最近三个月内积聚了新的动力,但是遭到了镇丫,其中几十人被捕。当局不满足他们的要求。一些被拘留者交保后获释;但通告了开庭日期。此外,一些教师因参与抗议而失去了工作。

六。二〇〇六年一月:德黑兰以及郊区公共汽车公司的约一千名工人在罢工期间被捕。一些人受到拷问。多数人则被解雇。甚至连一些工人的配偶和子女也没被放过。

七。上百万工人因所谓“拖欠工资”(未付工资)而从数月到两年没有工资。举例来说,卡尚(Kashan)市的纺织工人已经十四个月未发工资,加兹温(Ghazvin)的一些纺织公司和全国其他数百家工厂。最低工资——如果全部支付——约为官方贫困线的三分之一。

八。约三年前哈通·阿巴德(Khatoon Abad)铜矿工人的罢工示威被粉碎。安全部队向工人开枪,打死四人。

九。二〇〇五年九月:巴布·尼祖(Bab Nizoo)矿井的十一名矿工遇难,因为资方尝试以关掉通风机来省钱。当局不承认对遇难者家属的任何责任。

  对这些暴行的任何抗议都被回之以子弹、监狱、拷问和开枪。伊朗政府的伊斯兰劳工委员会和“工人之家”,作为“工人的代表”参加国际劳工组织会议,他们是政府建立的意识形态组织,旨在帮助政府攻击工人。一个例子是二〇〇五年五月九日对公共汽车工人联合会机关的攻击,当时伊斯兰议会和工人之家的领导成员试图让奥桑洛先生闭嘴。而且在今年粉碎公共汽车工人罢工期间,这些组织在识别罢工积极分子方面与安全部队通力合作。

  伊朗伊斯兰共和国及其代表不应被允许参加国际劳工组织会议(此处原文should be allowed疑似有误)。取代受邀参加国际劳工组织会议的是,他们必须为二十八年中对工人犯下的罪行而受到审判。

  我们请求所有工人和工会的代表同意把伊朗伊斯兰委员会和工人之家代表赶出国际劳工组织,以支持伊朗工人的基本权利——组织工会的权利,罢工的权利和劳资集体谈判的权利。

In protestation against the presence of Islamic Republic of Iran at the ILO
A look at a fraction of Islamic Republic’s
crimes against workers in Iran


While ILO’s annual convention is being held and Islamic Regime and its agents of Islamic Councils and Workers’House are present there, it is worth to take a look at a fraction of its dismal treating and of suppression of workers rights and their struggles.
1- On May Day 2007, 13 workers activists, 1) Shaice Amani, president of the board of directors of Nationwide Union of Unemployed and Dismissed Workers, 2) Sediq Karimi, member of board of directors of the same organization, 3) Khaled Sevari, vice president of the Union, 4) Eqbal Latifi, 5) Yadolla Moradi, 6) Najmehdin Rajabi, 7) Farooq Gavili, 8) Anvar Mefakheri, 9) Sediq Amjadi, 10) Habibolla Kelkani, 11) Mohiadin Rajabi, 12) Sediq Sobhani, and 13) Tayb Chetani were arrested for participating in May Day celebration. Eleven of these jailed workers were released on bail, but Shaice Amani and Sediq karimi are still detained. The released workers are being called to the court for trial.
2- Once more a new wave of attacks is begun on Afghan immigrant workers. Security forces are randomly and without prior notice showing up at the workshops and other workplaces to hunt down Afghan workers and treat them with utmost violence. They are even being thrown down from the scaffolds. An Afghan immigrant worker lost his life in one of these atrocious attacks.
3- On April 9 2007 Mahmood Salehi, one of city of Saqez’s labour activists, was arrested and was taken and being held at Sanandej prison.
4- Mansoor Osanloo, president of Vahed Bus Union in March of this year’s Revolutionary Court’s session, on a bogus charge of “Security Threat” condemned to 4 years in prison; and one extra year for the charge of “propaganda against the regime” was added to his jail time.
5- Teachers struggle to obtain their basic rights, which had gathered new momentum in the last 3 months, was faced with suppression and dozens of them were arrested. Authorities have not met their demands. Some of the detainees have been released on bail; but are to report to a court date. Furthermore, some of the teachers have lost their jobs for participating in these protests.
6- January 2006: around 1,000 bus workers of Tehran and Suburbs Bus Company were arrested during their strike. Some were tortured. Many were sacked. Even the partners and children of some of the workers were not spared.
7- Over one million workers have been without pay from several months to 2 years due to so called "wage arrears" (non-payment of wages). For example, textile workers in the city of Kashan, who have been without pay for 14 months, several textile companies in Ghazvin and hundreds of other factories around the country. The minimum wage - if paid at all around 1/3 of the official poverty line.
8- The protest of workers at Khatoon Abad copper mine over jobs around three years ago was crushed. The security forces fired at the workers, killing four.
9- September 2005: 11 miners at Bab Nizoo mine perished because the management had tried to save money by turning off the ventilators. The authorities have not accepted any responsibility towards the families of the deceased.
Any protest against these atrocities is answered with bullets, prison, torture and firing. The Iranian government's Islamic Labour Councils and “Workers' House”, who attend the ILO conference as “workers' representatives”, are ideological and state-sponsored organisations which work with the government in its attacks on workers. One example was the attack on the office of the bus workers' union on 9 May 2005, when leading members of the Islamic Councils and Workers' House tried to cut Mr. Ossanlou's tongue. Also during the crushing of the bus workers' strike this year, these organisations worked hand in hand with the security forces in identifying strike activists.
Islamic Republic of Iran and its representatives should be allowed to attend ILO’s conventions. Instead of being invited to ILO conferences, they must stand trial for 28 years of crime against  workers.
We request all workers' delegates and trade unions to press for the expulsion of the representatives of Iran's Islamic Councils and Workers' House from the ILO, in support of the fundamental rights of workers in Iran - the right to organise, the right to strike and the right to collective bargaining.

巴赫拉姆·索罗什二〇〇六年六月十二日在国际劳工组织会议上的演讲

  女士们先生们,我很高兴能有机会在这次会议上就伊朗工人的处境发表演说。

  很不幸,伊朗工人在这次会议上没有代表。所以能把他们的愿望带上这次会议是我的荣耀。

  你们或许知道,伊朗各地工人已致信国际劳工组织(ILO)秘书长胡安·索马维亚先生,诉说来自伊朗的所谓“工人代表团”并不代表伊朗工人;这些人是伊朗政府的伊斯兰劳工委员会和工人之家的成员,这些组织是政府搞起来的,负责对工人的监视和镇丫。

  这次会议的代表之一,艾瓦兹·阿里·阿克巴(Eivazi Ali Akbar)先生,去年亲自指挥了一次针对德黑兰公共汽车工人联合会办公室的猛攻,使联合会会长奥桑洛先生和许多其他工会会员身受重伤。

  因试图建立一家工会,在将近六个月之后,奥桑洛先生仍在狱中。

  一月,近千名德黑兰的公共汽车司机和工人因举行罢工而被逮捕和监禁。在伊朗,你会因试图建立劳工组织和举行罢工而被捕。仅仅数月前,伊朗霍德罗集团汽车制造公司的超过五十名工人因举行罢工而遭枪击。上百万工人因被欠薪而从数月到两三年没有工资。卡尚、加兹温以及全国数百家其他工厂的纺织工人被欠薪达数月之久。

  伊朗最低工资标准约为官方贫困线的三分之一。

  几年前,安全部队对哈通·阿巴德铜矿工人开枪,打死四人。

  事例不胜枚举……

  伊朗伊斯兰共和国政权及其伊斯兰劳工委员会和工人之家应为他们对工人的残酷镇丫、不承认国际性地组织工会和罢工以及劳资集体谈判的权利、不承认获得体面收入的基本权利、不承认人类的生存……而被逐出国际劳工组织。

  女士们先生们!尊敬的工会代表和工人代表们!

  请行使你们作为国际劳工组织成员的权利与权力,立即推动把伊朗政权及其伊斯兰委员会和工人之家逐出国际劳工组织的行动。

  国际劳工组织的合法性不应给予这些工人迫害者。伊朗工人的真正代表应获准参加国际劳工组织会议。

  伊朗及其伊斯兰委员会滚出国际劳工组织!

Bahram Soroush speech at the ILO
Conference 12 June 2006


I am delighted, ladies and gentlemen, for the opportunity that I have to address this conference about the situation of workers in Iran.
Unfortunately Iranian workers are not represented at this conference. So I am honoured to be bringing their voice to this conference.
As you may know, various sections of Iranian workers have written to the Director-General of the ILO, Mr. Juan Somavia, to say that the so-called "workers' delegation" from Iran does not represent Iranian workers; that these people are members of the Iranian government's Islamic Labour Councils and Workers' House, which are statesponsored bodies, charged with workers' surveillance and repression.
One of the delegates at this conference, namely Mr. Ali Akbar Eivazi, personally led a vicious attack last year on the office of Tehran's bus workers' union, inflicting serious injuries on Mr. Ossanlou, the president of that union, and many other unionists.
Mr Ossanlou is still in prison, after nearly six months, for trying to build a union.
In January, nearly 1,000 bus drivers and workers in Tehran were arrested and jailed for going on strike. In Iran you are arrested for trying to form labour organisations and for going on strike. Just a couple of months ago, over 50 workers of Iran Khodro carmanufacturing company were fired for
going on strike. Over a million workers have been without pay, from several months to 2 or 3 years, due to non-payment of their wages. The textile workers of Kashan, Ghazvin and hundreds of other factories around the country have not been paid for months.
The minimum wage in Iran is around 1/3 of the official poverty line.
A few years ago, the security forces fired on the workers at Khatoon Abad copper mine, killing four.
The list is endless...
The Islamic Republic regime of Iran and its Islamic Labour Councils and Workers' House should be expelled from the ILO for their brutal repression of workers; for denying them internationally recognised rights to organise and strike and to collective bargaining; for denying them the basic right to a decent pay; for denying them a human existence...
Ladies and gentlemen! Honourable trade union representatives and workers' delegates!
Please use your rights and powers as members of the ILO to urge the immediate expulsion of the Iranian regime and its Islamic Councils and Workers' House from the ILO.
No ILO legitimacy should be given to these persecutors of workers. Genuine representatives of Iranian workers should be allowed to take part at ILO conferences.
Iran and its Islamic Councils out of ILO!

伊朗工人在国际劳工组织会议上没有代表!

发信人:伊朗全国解雇和失业工人联合会

收信人:国际劳动工会联合会

抄送:国际劳工组织年会的全体代表


向所有的朋友和我们的同事致以无限的祝福,

  今年国际劳工组织年会将在伊朗的下列情形下举行:

一、根据公布的官方报告,今年上半年只有两千人被解雇。其他的官方报告解释剩余的有工作的人是怎样因那样而承受双份工作的重负。(你们应该知道伊朗的官方报告只有极小的一部分会被公布出来。)

二、不按时支付工人薪水受到了更大的注意。所有工人抗议中的大约百分之九十五集中于不能按时付薪。官方报告告诉我们每月约有五十次工人抗议。官方报告还告诉我们每月约有三十起关于在工厂里雇主不按时给其工人薪水的诉讼。在这些诉讼中工人不进行抗议只是因为他们害怕被解雇和失业。官方报告举了一个例子,在“奥斯拉威(Oslavie)”,百分之五十的工人得拖五六个月才能得到薪水。

三、二〇〇六年的个人每月最低工资是16.84美元。官方报告称在超过三万家承包公司里有超过一百万名工人。报告指出其中的四分之三每月给他们工人的甚至比这个数还要少。(我们必须提醒你们,几年前伊朗的贫困线被伊朗中央银行正式定在了每月四十美元。)举例来说,库姆(Qom)省一名餐巾工厂工人的月薪是八点六三美元。这些薪水面临的是这样的情况,即在德黑兰(首都)工人阶级居住区为一个四口之家租一间普通住处每月需付二十三点七四美元;其它工业大城市是此数的百分之七十。

四、由于薪水如此低于贫困线和以及成千上万停工和失业的规模下,在过去一年中童工尤其是在工场里的童工、乞丐和街头小贩急速增加。更悲惨的情形是阿富汗移民的子女生存于如此非人环境中而且没有任何接受教育的权利。

五、伊朗女工被剥夺了与男人有平等工资的权利。依照正式报告的一个例子,去年扎博尔(Zabol)的纺织工厂解雇了其男工并以五点四美元雇用女性。大城市中的女性时常在私人公司中以女推销员的身份工作而其中多数拿男性工资的一半。

六、在伊朗通常没有集体合同。去年,这种奴工似的情形,不仅包括像单月合同和空白支票之类的协议(你在一张空白表格上签字,而后雇主可以在上面随意写要求),而且他们必须填一份空白表格,还要给雇主数百美元的汇票。如此一些情形被正式揭发于工业城市萨韦(Saveh)。

  另一方面:

一、去年,萨南达杰的“帕里斯(Parris)”工厂和巴博尔萨(Babolsar)的“阿尔伯兹(Alborz)地毯”集团的工人们惨遭镇丫,以致于其中一些人受伤还有数十名工人被捕。代拉姆(Daylam)港的海关员工遭到残酷镇丫,一名员工被安全警察射中头部。

二、全国数万名老师的罢工遭到残酷镇丫,其中数百人被拘捕并监禁。

三、一个月前,萨南达杰的安全部队和警察攻击了国际劳动节庆祝活动,打伤许多工人,十三人被捕。十天之后其中十一名被捕者交保五百四十美元后出狱,剩下的两人,执行总管沙伊斯·阿玛尼和塞迪克·卡里米“全国解雇和失业工人联合会”的执行主管成员现仍在狱中。在安全部队的攻击中沙伊斯·阿玛尼的左膝受伤。塞迪克·卡里米在攻击中一只耳朵失去听力,还有一颗牙齿被打掉。所有将这两人送院治疗的请求都被拒绝。

四、国际劳动节前夕,伊朗工人领袖之一马哈穆德·萨勒希在没有任何书面正当理由和任何法律许可程序的情况下遭到逮捕并被转移到中部的萨南达杰监狱。马哈穆德·萨勒希唯一一个肾的百分之五十尚有功能,他身体状况非常危机,需要立即接受治疗,但是(政府)拒绝给予他任何医护。他的健康和生命都极其危险。

五、近两年德黑兰公共汽车运输联合企业的员工处于入狱、解雇、殴打和生命威胁的巨大压力之下。几天前曼苏尔·奥桑洛,运输联合企业的执行总管获判入狱五年。德黑兰公共汽车运输联合企业是国际运输工人联盟的成员。

  以上只描述了伊朗工人工作和生活情况中的一小部分。伊朗政府无视在九八年与八七年书面协议上的签字,他们禁止任何在伊朗建立工人组织的企图。任何工人聚会都受到猛烈镇丫,在此情形下伊朗工人毫无权利。伊斯兰委员会和工人之家搞间谍活动并制造各种苦难,工人代表每天在狱中被他们拷问。过去二十八年中使工人权利尽丧的罪魁祸首竟作为伊朗工人的代表受邀参加国际劳工组织年会。

  我们认为,接受工人之家和伊斯兰委员会作为伊朗工人的代表参加国际劳工组织年会,这是极端的反工人举措,我们联合会对此加以谴责。


我们的朋友和亲爱的同事:

  伊朗全国解雇和失业工人联合会在全体大会上由来自不同工厂的临时工、被停职和解雇的工人们建立起来了。我们期待你们和全世界其他参加今年国际劳工组织会议的劳工代表抗议伊朗工人的奴隶状况。我们请求你们坚决反对国际劳工组织允许工人之家和伊斯兰委员会代表参加国际劳工组织会议的妥协政策。我们请求你们要求立即和无条件的释放马哈穆德·萨勒希、沙伊斯·阿玛尼和塞迪克·卡里米。我们请求你们要求国际劳工组织,除非伊朗允许工人自己自由地建立独立的劳工组织,否则国际劳工组织不接受任何人为“工人代表”。

  我们亲切地与你们握手并希望今年你们的国际劳工组织会议圆满成功!

  国际劳工团结万岁!

伊朗全国解雇和失业工人联合会

Iranian Workers are not
Represented at ILO’s Conventions!


From: Nationwide Union of Dismissed and Unemployed workers of Iran
To: International Confederation of Labour Unions

With Warmest Greeting to All Friends and Our Coworkers,

The ILO annual session is going to be held in the following situation in Iran this year:
1- In respect to the official report given out during the first half of the year before only two thousands were laid off. Other official report explains how remaining working people have to take the burden of extra work as a result of that. (You should know that just a very small portion of what is going on is given out by official report in Iran)
2- Not paying workers’ wages on time has got much wider attention. Approximately 95% of all workers’ protests have been focusing on not getting paid on time. The official reports tell us of approximately 50 workers protests each month. The official reports tell us also that there are approximately 30 cases each month that employer did not pay their workers on time in factories. In these cases workers did not protest just because they were afraid of being laid off and unemployed. The official reports give an example in “Oslavie” in which 50% of workers got their wages but with a 5 to 6 month delay.
3-Workers’minimum wage was $16.84 US per month in 2006. Official report says that there have been more than 30 thousand contractor companies with more than 1 million workers. The report states that three quarter of them gave their workers even less than this amount each month. (We have to remind you that Poverty Line in Iran officially has been set to $40 US each month by the Iranian Central Bank a few years earlier.) For example a worker’s wage for Napkin factories in province of Qom has been $8.63 US per month. These wages are in such a situation that rent for a ordinary accommodation of a family of 4 in working class area in Tehran (Capital) is $23.74 US each month; whereas other large industrial cities is 70% of that.
4- Due to wages being so far under poverty line and in scale of hundreds of thousands layoffs and unemployment, in the past year child labour especially in workshops, beggars and peddlers in streets rates are rising at a rapid pace. More tragic situation are for children of Afghan Immigrants who live in such inhumane condition and do not have right to any education.
5- Woman workers in Iran are deprived from equal wages in respect to men. An example as reported officially, textile factories in Zabol last year laid off their male workers and hired women with $5.40 US. Women in large cities often work in private companies as sale women and majority of them gets half of the wage as men get.
6- Generally there are no collective agreements in Iran. Last year, not only with such slavery condition as one month contract and blank checks type of agreement (you sign a blank form and whatever employer wants they can write in it afterwards), but also they had to sign blank form and giving several hundreds US$ draft to name of employer to be hired. Several such cases have officially been reported in industrial city of Saveh.

On other hand:
1- Last year, workers of “Parris” factory in Sanandaj and “Alborz Carpet” in Babolsar were brutally oppressed in such a way that some of them were injured and dozens of workers were arrested. Custom workers in port of Daylam were severely oppressed in such a way that one of the workers was shot in the head by security police.
2- Nation wide tens of thousands of teachers gathered and their strikes were brutally oppressed and hundreds of them were arrested and put in prison.
3- A month ago, security forces and police in Sanandaj attacked the May Day celebration injuring many of the workers, 13 were arrested. 11 of these arrested were freed after 10 days on $540 US bail, the two remainders, Shaice Amani chief executive director and Sadiq Karimi member of executive director of “Nationwide Union of Dismissed and Unemployed” are currently in prison. Shaice Amani was injured on his left knee during the security force’s attack. Sadiq Karimi has lost hearing in one ear during this attack and one of his teeth has been broken. All requests for these two to have medical care access has been denied.
4- Prior to May Day, Mahmood Salehi one of workers leader in Iran without any written warrant and any lawful process was arrested and was transferred to the Central Sanandaj prison. Mahmood Salehi has only one kidney which 50% of it is working, for that reasons he is in very critical physical condition, and in need of immediate medical care, has been denied any and all medical care. His health and life are in great danger.
5- In the last two years members of Tehran Bus Transit Syndicate were under the extreme pressure with prison, lay offs, beating and life threats of their lives. Few days ago Mansoor Osanloo, the chief executive director of the syndicate was convicted to 5 years in prison. The Tehran Bus Transit Syndicate is a member of International Confederation of Transport Workers.
The conditions described above are only a brief description of what work and living conditions of workers are like in Iran. Despite of Iranian government signature under written agreements of 98 & 87, any effort to establish workers’ organization are forbidden in Iran. Any workers’ gathering is oppressed savagely, in such situations with absolutely no right for workers in Iran. While workers representatives are being tortured daily in prison by Islamic Councils and Workers House which are spies and the means of a creation of all misery. This leads to complete lack of any right for workers during the past 28 years are invited as workers representative of Iranian workers to ILO annually meeting.
The acceptance of Workers House and Islamist Councils to attend annual meeting of ILO as the Iranian workers’representation in our view is in direction of utmost anti workers policy in Iran, and our Union condemns that.

To our friends and dear coworkers,
The Nationwide Union of Dismissed and Unemployed Workers of Iran in its general assembly with temporary workers, suspended and laid off workers from different factories has been established. We expect you and other worldwide labour representatives who participate in the ILO meeting this year to protest the slavery conditions of the workers in Iran. We ask you all to protest compromising policy of ILO that provide present of House Worker and Islamist Councils in ILO meeting. We ask you to demand the immediate and unconditional release of Mahmood Salehi, Shaice Amani and Sadiq Karimi from prison. We ask you to request ILO unless independent labour organizations are not allowed to be established freely in Iran by workers themselves; it should not accept any individuals as “workers’ representatives”.

We hold your hands warmly and wish for the success in your ILO meeting this year!

<h2>致国际自由工会联盟(InternationalConfederation of Free Trade Unions,ICFTU)</h2>

2005年11月4日


致ICFTU:

你们的《关于全球侵害工会权利的05年年度调查》(annual survey for 2005 onthe violation of trade union rights)中把伊朗列为对劳工活动家而言最危险的国家之一。尽管你们的报告材料只反映了暴行的一小部分,但还是很好的。

你们正确地把伊朗和白俄罗斯,缅甸,柬埔寨,中国,多米尼加共和国,海地,尼日利亚,菲律宾,土耳其,委内瑞拉,津巴布韦列在一起。你们报告了活动家被突袭,逮捕,虐待的事件。你们提到了去年五一劳动节的逮捕行动,对罢工纺织工人的骚扰,对公交司机集会的野蛮攻击,4个罢工者的被杀,许多人受伤……

我在这说说这周的两件新闻:

一。Kurdistan纺织公司的几百工人还在继续罢工——你们曾报告了他们去年的两次罢工——已经是第6个星期了。去年11月和今年1月你们曾给伊朗政府写过抗议信谴责其恐吓工人代表。工人要求立即支付拖欠的工资,取消临时合同制,恢复被开除工人的职位,交还工人多达1800万Toman(1 Toman = 10 Rial)的公司合作基金(已经被从工资中扣除并由管理层保管)。管理层正和警察一起对工人施压恐吓。

10月31日星期一,一名工人代表Mr Farshid Beheshti Zad被情报部官员逮捕并暴打。第二天在工人断绝所有谈判的威胁下,他才满脸是血地被放出来。11月2日星期三他又被逮捕并暴虐,头上脖子上留有伤痕。其他工人代表也被不断传唤、骚扰。

这个公司的工人需要你们强烈支持。他们需要全世界工会的支持。

二。11月1日,Alborz地毯公司的400工人集会游行,抗议8个月没拿到工资,遭警察暴打。

国际劳工组织(International Labour Organisation,ILO),在接到ICFTU的投诉后做了一个报告以示支持。

希望全世界劳工组织报道并支持伊朗工人的要求。尤其是:每月450000Toman的最低工资(折合550美元);给付拖欠工资;拖欠要付滞纳金;提高健康/安全保护;要求派工厂检查员监督并报道。

<h2>Letter To International Confederation of Free Trade Unions (ICFTU)</h2>

November 4, 2005

Dear ICFTU:

Your annual survey for 2005 on the violation of trade union rights around the world has named Iran as one of the most dangerous countries for labour activists. Your report documents some of the realities of repression and violation of rights for workers in Iran. Even if this only reflects a small fraction of the atrocities being committed against workers in Iran, it is a much-needed contribution and welcome.

You have rightly ranked Iran alongside states such as Belarus, Burma, Cambodia, China, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Nigeria, the Philippines, Turkey, Venezuela and Zimbabwe. You have reported on the raids on the homes of labour activists and their detention and torture for holding labour rallies. You have mentioned the arrest of labour activists on May Day last year, the harassment of striking textile workers, the brutal attack on the meeting of bus drivers and the killing of four striking workers and wounding of many more…

Let me here also mention two other pieces of news from just over this week:

1- Right now several hundred workers of Kurdistan Textile Company - whose two strikes last year your report also covers - are in their sixth week of a new, bitter strike. Last November and in January this year you wrote protest letters to the government in Iran, condemning the intimidation of workers’ representatives. The workers of this company are demanding, among other things, immediate payment of wage arrears, an end to temporary contracts, reinstatement of sacked workers whose cards have been confiscated, and return to the company’s co-op fund of workers’ savings of up to 18 million Tomans (already deducted from their pay and kept by the management). The management, with the help of the security forces, has put workers under much pressure and is intimidating them in order to break their strike.

On Monday 31 October, Mr Farshid Beheshti Zad, one of the workers’ representatives, was arrested by officials of the Information Ministry and viciously beaten up while in detention. He was released the following day, bloody-faced, after protest by workers who threatened to break off all talks unless he was immediately released. He was again arrested on Wednesday 2 November and this time tortured, which has left him with injury marks on his face and neck. There are reports that other worker reps are also being constantly summoned and harassed.

The workers in this company need your urgent support. They need the support of all trade unions worldwide.

2- Also on 1 November, 400 workers of Alborz Carpet Company in the northern city of Babolsar held a rally and marched in protest at the non-payment of eight months’ wages. The security forces brutally attacked this protest, beating up the workers.

These are just two examples of attacks on workers that happened only this week in Iran. We are calling for your swift response to these atrocities and specifically for your support to the workers of Kurdistan Textile Company, who have been on strike since 24 September.

While welcoming your report for reflecting some of the atrocities and violation of workers’ rights going on in Iran, we also want to emphasise the need for a powerful campaign of protest against the Islamic Republic of Iran and in support of workers in Iran.

In the report of its Committee on the Application of Standards, the International Labour Organisation (ILO), prompted by complaints submitted by the ICFTU, has mentioned the plight of workers in Iran and specifically the non-payment of wages for up to 24 months.

Based on these reports, we call on the ICFTU and all trade unions internationally to take serious measures to expel the Iranian regime and its representatives - Islamic Labour Councils and the Workers’ House - from the ILO.

We also call for support to the demands of workers in Iran, in particular the right to organise and strike, a minimum wage of 450,000 Tomans (US$550) per month, immediate payment of wage arrears, plus the compensation for late payment, improved workplace health and safety and commissioning of labour inspectors to inspect and report on the situation of workers in Iran.

Towards this end, we are launching an international campaign of labour solidarity with workers in Iran. We look forward to your joining this campaign by supporting the above demands of Iranian workers, organising labour inspection teams to go to Iran and in particular lending your urgent support to the strike by the workers of Kurdistan Textile Company.

In solidarity,

Shahla Daneshfar

Co-ordinator,

International Labour Solidarity Committee of the Worker-communist Party of Iran

<h2>关于全球侵害工会权利的05年年度调查</h2>

伊朗
人口:69800000
首都:德黑兰
ILO文件……29 -100 - 105 - 111 – 182号

如果临时合同立法草案通过,90%的工人就实际失去了组织权。今年河蟹横行,尤其是杀了4个、起诉了7个活动家。对很多工会都有逮捕和恐吓。


<h3>法律中的劳工权利</h3>

<h4>Islamic labour council 伊斯兰工人代表会</h4>

1990劳工法:任何单位有权成立一个Islamic labour council或指定一位工人代表。它说, “为了宣传和传播伊斯兰文化,维护伊朗伊斯兰革命所取得的成就,……可成立伊斯兰社团/协会。”

Islamic labour council的纲领和选举都是官定的……这个东西在三方谈判中就代表工人。这个东西由另一个官办组织the Workers' House监督。

<h4>工会</h4>

03年的一项修正案允许工人不用许可便可成立所谓的“工会”,但要遵守注册程序。如果工会的章程合理,则劳工部必须在30天内给以注册。实际上劳工部把持权利。

<h4>政府控制</h4>

所有集体协议都要经劳工部审批以防不和谐。政府规定最低工资;同时政府本身就是最大的雇主,占所有劳动力的40%。

<h4>不许罢工</h4>

法律中没有罢工权,但是工人可以在工作地点停工或怠工。1993年法律禁止公共部门的罢工。

<h4>出口加工区</h4>

劳工法例不适用于出口加工区。

<h4>大多数工人得不到劳动法保护</h4>

2000年2月通过了一项法律,雇用5人及以下的企业六年内不必遵守劳动法。该法影响三百万工人,并使得雇用和解雇更容易。

2003年1月,(由Islamic labour councils代表组成的)伊朗劳工最高理事会(the Iranian Supreme Council of Labour)和政府规定10人及以下的作坊不必遵守劳动法。这影响450000个作坊中的402000个。比如绝大多数的地毯工人将失去保护。

2004年11月提交议会的一项草案欲使劳工中的90%,临时工失去劳动法保护,包括组织权,年假,升薪,公共假期等。临时工已经没有失业救济金


<h3>实践中的劳工权利</h3>

<h4>抗议</h4>

尽管禁止罢工,在最近几年还是有无数的抗议和停工事件。这些通常被严厉镇丫。

<h4>组织的障碍</h4>

工作地点有安全/情报人员。大量临时合同。企业常常一次次地进行3个月的“试用”,而在到期前解除合同。这样的工人不享有享有福利和遣散费。据政府消息有超过150万工人处于这种境地。

<h4>资方反对工会</h4>

像Iran Khodro汽车公司(中东最大的同类公司,拥有超过34000名工人),以及他们的转包商(如Ehya-Gostar Sabz),阻碍工人的组织。资方,劳工部,Islamic Labor Council携手打压工人,抗议工人将被解雇。石油工人也是如此。


<h3>2004年的侵害行为</h3>

<h4>背景</h4>

因为它的核计划,伊朗受到的压力一直在增加。11月,政府同意暂停浓缩铀,以换取欧盟恢复与伊朗的贸易谈判。欧盟已表示,会谈将鼓励尊重人权和工会权利。

<h4>警察枪杀4个工人</h4>

2004年1月24日警察在Khatoonabad村和Kerman省Shahr-e Babak市罢工中至少杀了4人,打伤40多人。非官方报告7—15人死亡,多达300人受伤。

他们的雇主,为伊朗国家铜工业公司建造Nazkhaton炼铜厂的分包商,与中国有色金属有限公司合作,曾许诺签1500人的长期合同,但工程结束只签了250个。

2004年1月24日之前工人和家属在工厂前静坐、堵路,抗议拖欠工资和解雇。坚持了8天。省保安委员会(The Provincial Security Council)调来特警解决问题,对抗然后蔓延到Shahr-e Babak市,在那里也出动了特警。

政府诬蔑称有暴徒打抢砸。

随后几天的抗议冲突。警察挨家挨户逮捕工人和家属。官方数字称80人被捕。

<h4>攻击、迫害5·1节庆祝活动</h4>

Kurdistan省Saqez市几百工人和家属在劳工节游行时被警察攻击。超过40名与会者被拘留和关押,内有著名的活动家:Mr.Mahmoud Salehi,Jalal Hosseini,Borhan Divangar, Mohammad Abdipoor, Mohsen Hakimi, Esmail Khodkam和Hadi Tanoumand。

警察随后抄Mahmoud Salehi的家,他的电脑和文件被没收。家属和其他市民在安全部外抗议。大多数人很快获释,但上述7人于5月12日才在国际压力下保释,交了两亿Toman(约合25万美元)保释金。

他们被控非法集会,但被释放时什么指控也没提出。

<h4>捏造指控</h4>

6月底7人被指控和Kurdistan省的地下左翼组织“Komala”有染。这种指控很方便,并可加以重刑,包括死刑。

<h4>持续的骚扰和干涉</h4>

Borhan Divangar报告自从被释,他家一直受到骚扰,他不能作为Saqez面包工人协会的董事会的候选人,拿不到国家食品券,他私人物品像电脑、书、一家子的身份证都被警察搜走了。

Bahram Soroush认为他们电脑里那些“Komala”的东西都是警察随后拷进去的。他也被骚扰,监视,电话被掐断。

<h4>拖延审判</h4>

最初7人定于8月24日出庭。但推迟了两次,说法官不在。12月25日未经通知,Borhan Divangar一案开了听证会,他的律师抗议他受到的虐待和酷刑,但情报部不作证。审判关门进行,ICFTU要求观察不被允许。其他6人定于05年1、2月审判。

2004年9月10号17个工厂的工人和Sanandaj的一些工人表示支持7名活动家。

<h4>教师因合法工会活动被控</h4>

教师公会协会总书记Mahmoud Beheshti Langarudi于2004年5月被传唤到法院,被控在3月的工作时间串联煽动罢工。1/3的教师,200000人参加了罢工。

<h4>逮捕教师</h4>

2004年7月12号Mahmoud Beheshti Langarudi和组织发言人Ali-Asghar Zati因6月的罢工被捕。教师们要求加薪,并支付拖欠的52亿里亚尔,折合6.2亿美元。百分之八十的伊朗教师生活在贫困线以下,需要两份工作才能生存。逮捕引发7月19日在伊朗议会前的抗议,但组织被封口。两人在8月中旬交了一大笔钱后保释出来。组织的其他成员在北部Mazandaran省也被逮捕。

<h4>Kurdistan纺织厂的恐吓</h4>

2004年10月31号武装安全部队包围罢工中的Sanandaj市Kurdistan纺织厂,切断出入口。

75个工人开始静坐罢工,抗议公司大规模裁员计划。11月1日罢工已蔓延至全厂。该市的其他两个纺织厂 ,面包工会和其他一些来自纺织业,铝业,塑料工业的工人和大学生,以及Saquez的工人支持罢工。在整个Sanandaj市,大量的人签署了一份请愿书,并设立罢工基金。一些示威者进行绝食而必须住院。

11月3日,雇主和政府同意提高遣散费,罢工结束。75名被解雇工人拿到了遣散费和失业保险金,罢工者都拿到了全薪,但不保证不进一步裁员。工人一直处于警察的监视威胁中。

<h4>Kurdistan纺织厂的新的恐吓、骚扰</h4>

新的罢工行动始于2004年12月22号。5名工人被解雇后350人开始罢工。工人抗议解雇,解雇长期雇员并用三个月临时合同工取代他们,2004年期间辞退175名工人,遣散费太少,工作条件差,私有化计划,工作场所没有食堂,缺乏健康和安全保护,不尊重工人,没有罢工的权利,资方背弃11月所达成的协议。

工人担心,安全部队又将被部署在工厂。他们选出了一个工人委员会维护自己的权利。安全部队和雇主向委员会的成员施加压力,尤其是对主席Mr. Shis Amani。他受到审讯,并几次受到威胁,只是工人的支持才使他没被拘禁。其他工人代表,如Messrs Hadi Zarei,Iqbal Moradi, Hassan Shariati,Farshid Beheshti Zad和Ahmad Fatehi都被威胁解雇和逮捕。

许多工人被驱逐,工人积极分子受到巨大的压力。但是,委员会成立了罢工基金和一个危机委员会以防工人委员会被破坏。今年年底罢工仍在进行之中。据报道,这次罢工已得到Sanandaj其他工人和市民的广泛支持。

<h2>Annual Survey of Violations of Trade Union Rights (2005)</h2>

Population: 69,800,000 / Capital: Tehran / ILO Core Conventions Ratified: 29 - 100 - 105 - 111 – 182

About 90 % of the workforce could be denied the right to organise if draft legislation on temporary workers is adopted. A host of violations took place during the year, notably the killing of four strikers and the prosecution behind closed doors of seven independent labour leaders for peacefully celebrating May Day. There were also multiple arrests and many cases of harassment of trade unionists.



<h3>TRADE UNION RIGHTS IN LAW</h3>

<h4>Islamic labour councils</h4>

Iran's 1990 Labour Code states that workers in any unit can establish an Islamic labour council, a guild society, or appoint a workers' representative. However, the code gives a central place to Islamic societies and associations. It says that "in order to propagate and disseminate Islamic culture and to defend the achievements of the Islamic revolution … the workers of production, industrial, agricultural, service and guild units may establish Islamic societies and associations."

The rules for the functioning of the Islamic labour councils, their constitutions and elections, are drawn up by the Ministry of the Interior, the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, and the Islamic Information Organisation. The Council of Ministers then has to approve these rules. The councils now represent workers in tripartite meetings.

These labour councils are overseen by the sole authorised national organisation, known as the Workers' House.

<h4>Trade unions</h4>

An amendment to the Labour Code in 2003 allows workers to form and join so-called "trade unions", without prior permission, provided that registration regulations are observed. The Ministry of Labour must register these unions within 30 days, provided that the unions' constitutions are in order. Again, the Ministry of Labour determines their rights and responsibilities.

<h4>Government control</h4>

All collective agreements have to be submitted to the Ministry of Labour for examination and approval. The government maintains that this is to prevent these agreements from undermining the minimum rights established by law. The government sets wage levels in most industries and is the largest employer, accounting for 40 per cent of the workforce.

<h4>No strikes allowed</h4>

The law does not give workers the right to strike, but they can down tools so long as they remain at the workplace, or operate a go-slow. A 1993 law prohibits public sector strikes.

<h4>Export processing zones</h4>

Labour legislation does not apply in the export processing zones.

<h4>Most workers unprotected by the labour law</h4>

A law, adopted in February 2000, exempted companies employing five people or fewer from having to respect labour legislation for a period of six years. This law affected some three million workers, and made it easier to hire and fire. In January 2003, the Iranian Supreme Council of Labour, composed of representatives of Islamic labour councils, employers and the government, approved the exemption of workshops of ten employees or less from labour legislation. This affects some 402,000 workshops out of a total of 450,000. For example, workers at most carpet weaving workshops would be deprived of the protection of existing labour legislation, including the right to organize.

Draft legislation exempting temporary workers from the scope of the labour legislation was tabled in parliament in November 2004. Such legislation would deprive about 90 % of the work force in Iran of the protection of the labour legislation, including the right to organize, annual leave, pay rises, the right to public holidays, and medical and social benefits. Workers on temporary work contracts have already been exempted from receiving unemployment benefit under legislation adopted earlier.



<h3>TRADE UNION RIGHTS IN PRACTICE</h3>

<h4>Protest activity</h4>

Despite the ban on strikes, there have been numerous protests and work stoppages in recent years. However these usually meet with heavy repression.

<h4>Obstacles to organising</h4>

Obstacles to organising include the presence of security and intelligence forces in workplaces, and the increasing trend towards temporary contracts. It is a common practice in Iran to fire workers the day before a three month probation period expires, in order to then rehire the worker on a new contract with a new period of three months probation, and repeating the scheme endlessly. A worker hired under such a contract is not entitled to benefits and severance pay. According to statistics reportedly provided by the government itself, more than 1,5 million workers are hired under such circumstances.

<h4>Anti-union employers</h4>

Workers are not free to organise in companies such as the Iran Khodro auto company (the largest of its kind in the Middle East, with more than 34,000 workers). Since July 2001 workers have tried unsuccessfully to assert their trade union rights, but management and officials of the Ministry of Labour prevented even the formation of the Islamic Labor Council. Workers of the company as well as of its subcontractors (such as Ehya- Gostar Sabz) have been regularly fired after their protests, e.g. for the non-payment of wages. Other well-known cases involve oil workers who are not allowed to organise.



<h3>VIOLATIONS IN 2004</h3>

<h4>Background</h4>

The pressure on Iran due to its nuclear programme has been increasing and in November the government agreed with European countries to suspend enrichment of uranium; in return the EU resumed trade talks with Iran. The EU has indicated that the talks will include a political dialogue and the trade union movement has encouraged the EU to include the respect for human rights and trade union rights in the dialogue.

<h4>Police shoot and kill four strikers</h4>

At least four workers were killed and 40 or more injured by riot police during a strike on January 24 2004 in the village of Khatoonabad and the city of Shahr-e Babak (Kerman Province), in the south east of Iran. Unofficial figures reported between 7-15 dead and up to 300 wounded.

Their employer, a subcontractor that built the Nazkhaton's Copper Smelting plant for the National Iranian Copper Industries Company, in cooperation with China's National Non- Ferrous Metals Co., had reportedly promised permanent contracts to the 1500 workers employed in the construction of the plant in the village of Khatoonabad. However, once the construction work was completed, the employer only retained 250 workers.

The workers and their families then protested, both at the layoffs and the deferred payment of salaries and benefits, by organising work stoppages and a sit-in at the plant, including blocking access to the plant, in the days leading up to January 24 2004. The sit-in lasted eight days before violence broke out. The Provincial Security Council dispatched more security forces to the area, bringing in special police forces from Kerman city by helicopter in order to break the strike. They attacked the protestors in the village of Khatoonabad and killed at least four workers in front of the plant. The confrontation then spread to the city of Shahr-e Babak where special police forces were also dispatched.

Many were wounded in clashes with baton-wielding riot police. Some had to be hospitalised, including several in a critical condition. The authorities invented various cover-up stories to justify the use of force, including the claim that motorbike riders started attacking government property, banks and other buildings.

Protests and clashes with police reportedly continued over the following days, leading to the arrest of workers and their relatives. Security forces conducted extensive house-tohouse searches. Some sources reported that a number of those arrested had been tortured. Official figures show that 80 people were arrested and 15 kept for interrogation.

Different public authorities including the President reportedly ordered investigations into the matter. However, by the end of the year the outcome of these investigations had not been disclosed, nor had anybody been held responsible for the killing of the four workers.

<h4>Attacked and persecuted for celebrating May Day</h4>

Marchers were attacked by the government's security forces on May 1 2004, when hundreds of workers and their families staged a peaceful rally and march in the City of Saqez (Kurdistan province), in order to celebrate Labour Day. The event was organised by "the First of May Council", a workers' organisation in Saqez.

Over 40 participants were detained and taken into custody. Among those arrested were Mr. Mahmoud Salehi (a well-known labour leader, who has already been arrested and detained several times, for example in 1983, in 1985 for a period of three years, in 1995 for eight days, in 1999 for two months and in 2000), Jalal Hosseini, Borhan Divangar, Mohammad Abdipoor, Mohsen Hakimi, Esmail Khodkam and Hadi Tanoumand.

The security forces subsequently raided Mahmoud Salehi's home and his computer and documents were confiscated. Families of the arrested workers and other citizens gathered outside the Security Ministry's offices to demand the release of all those arrested. Most were quickly released, but the seven abovementioned were only released on bail on May 12 after heavy international pressure, including that of the ILO. The families were asked the sum of 200 million tomans (around US$ 250,000) for their bail. At the time of their arrest they were mainly accused of illegal assembly, but at the time of their release no known charges had been brought against them.

<h4>Trumped up charges</h4>

At the end of June the seven labour leaders were charged with collaboration with the banned leftist political organisation "Komala" based in Iran's Kurdistan. Such charges enable an easier prosecution and carry heavier penalties, including the death penalty.

<h4>Continued harassment and interference</h4>

Borhan Divangar reported that since his release, he and his family had been subject to harassment. He was prevented from standing as a candidate for the board of Bakery Workers' Association in Saqez, denied state food vouchers and had private belongings such as his computer, books and his and his family's ID cards confiscated when police searched his home.

When Mahmoud Salehi asked why he was accused of sympathising with "Komala", he was told that the accusations were based on documentation retrieved from his computer. Mahmoud Salehi believes that the documentation must have been installed it on his computer and those of his fellow accused after they had been seized.

He continued to be subject to harassment. He was kept under surveillance after May 1 and the police bugged his phone.

<h4>Trials delayed</h4>

Initially the seven were to appear in court on August 24. However the date was changed twice due to the absence of the judge.

On December 25 a hearing on the case of Borhan Divangar was arranged without prior notice. His lawyer protested against the mistreatment and torture he had endured under interrogation during his detention in May 2004. Despite his protests, the Intelligence Ministry would not testify, but provided evidence in writing. The trial was held behind closed doors. Despite repeated requests for visas, the ICFTU was not allowed to observe this trial. Dates were scheduled for the trials of the remaining six defendants in case in January and February 2005. The ICFTU will apply for visas to attend these.

The trials became a symbol of the repression of workers in Iran, and prompted workers from 17 factories and a group of workers from Sanandaj to declare their support for the seven labour leaders in an open statement on September 10, 2004.

<h4>Teacher charged for legitimate trade union activities</h4>

Summoned to court in May 2004 on charges linked to strikes in March 2004, the General Secretary of the Teachers' Guild Association Mahmoud Beheshti Langarudi was accused of entering a school illegally, leaving his job during working hours and "agitating" teachers to strike. The strike was attended by 200.000 people, a third of all teachers.

<h4>Arrest of teachers</h4>

Police arrested Mahmoud Beheshti Langarudi and the spokesman of the organisation Ali-Asghar Zati on July 12, 2004 because of their trade union activities and the strikes that they organised in June 2004. The strikers were demanding higher wages and the payment of wage arrears of 5.2 billion rials (620 million US dollars). About 80 percent of Iranian teachers live below the poverty line and need two jobs to survive. The arrest led to a protest on July 19 in front of the main entrance the Iranian Parliament, but no statement was issued as the union had been intimidated into silence.

Mahmoud Beheshti Langarudi and Ali-Asghar Zati were only released on bail in Mid-August. Mr. Zati had to pay a bail of 70 million tomans (about 79,000 dollars) and Mr. Beheshti 50 million tomans (about 56,000 dollars). However, reportedly other members of the same association had been arrested in the northern province of Mazandaran.

<h4>Intimidation at the Kurdistan Textile Factory</h4>

Armed security forces surrounded the Kurdistan Textile Factory, which lies in Sanandaj City, the centre of Kurdistan province of Iran, and cut off access to the factory during a sit-in strike that started on October 31, 2004.

The 75 workers started the sitin strike to protest against the mass redundancy plans announced by management. On November 1 the strike was joined by workers from all sections of the factory till it finally covered the entire factory, with hundreds of workers participating in the sit-in. Workers from two other textile factories in the City (Shaho and Shinbaf), the Bakery Union and a number of others from the textiles industry, aluminium, diary, and plastic industry and university students supported the strike, as did workers in Saquez. Throughout the city of Sanandaj, a large number of people signed a petition and a support fund was set up. Some of the protesters went on hunger strike and had to be hospitalised.

The strike ended on November 3 when the employer and the government authorities agreed to improve severance pay. The agreement was negotiated when the factory was still besieged by armed forces; it included severance pay and unemployment insurance benefits for 75 redundant workers and full salary for the strikers, but no guarantees about further redundancies. The negotiations were reportedly observed by the local head of the security service, who threatened the workers' representatives.

<h4>Renewed intimidation and harassment at the Kurdistan Textile Factory</h4>

Renewed strike action began on December 22, 2004. The strike by 350 workers started after five workers were sacked. Workers protested against their dismissals, the policy of sacking of long-term employees to replace them with temporary workers on three month contracts, the dismissal of some 175 workers during 2004, the meagre severance pay packages, poor working conditions, privatisation plans, no meal service at the workplace, the lack of health and safety protection at the workplace, the lack of respect for workers rights and the right to strike and that management reneged on the agreement reached in November.

Workers feared that security forces would be deployed at the factory as they had been in November. However, they elected a Committee of Workers to defend their rights. Security forces and the employer pressured the members of the committee, and in particular Mr. Shis Amani, the chair of the committee, to end the strike. He was interrogated and threatened several times and only workers' support had prevented his detention.

Other workers' representatives such as Messrs Hadi Zarei, Iqbal Moradi, Hassan Shariati, Farshid Beheshti Zad and Ahmad Fatehi were threatened with dismissal and arrest.

Many workers were expelled and worker activists were put under "immense pressure". However, the committee managed to organise a strike fund and a crisis committee in case measures were taken against the Committee of Workers. At the end of the year the strike was still ongoing. The strike reportedly had wide support from other workers and city residents in Sanandaj.

<h2>Iran shipyard workers locked out</h2>

1600 shipyard workers in the southern port city of Bandar Abbas have been locked out after a strike action on Saturday. The workers, employees of Iran Shipbuilding & Offshore Industries Complex Co (ISOICO), are protesting against expulsions, lack of job grading, unpaid benefits and management behaviour.

The workers began their sit-in action by switching off the machines and remaining on the worksite. However on Sunday they found the entrances locked, after which they assembled outside the gates for a number of hours. According to the state news agency IRNA, company security Herasat on Saturday stopped journalists from entering the site. The workers have vowed to continue their action by assembling outside the shipyard.

<h2>Kurdistan纺织工人的罢工进入第6周</h2>


老板答应满足要求,工人代表获释

300名Kurdistan纺织公司工人威胁断绝所有谈判,工人代表Mr Farshid Beheshti Zad获释。

谈判中资方和政府同意除了支付罢工期间薪水以外的全部要求,但工人坚持这一条。

Sanandaj市的Kurdistan纺织公司工人自9月24日起已罢工6周。

罢工委员会提出要求:支付拖欠工资,取消临时合同制,恢复被开除工人的职位,年度健康检查,改善工作环境,交还工人的公司合作基金。

从一开始资方就试图用警察破坏罢工。上星期一Javad Akbari警长和另外12个警察进厂要抓10个“麻烦制造者”工人们集体指认“我就是!”而使得警察未能得逞,在嘘声中悻悻而去。工人定期开大会统一意志。

1月份他们进行过一次成功的罢工,并得到了国内外广泛的支持。

<h2>Iran (Kurdistan) textile workers’ strike enters its sixth week</h2>

Workers’ rep released as management pledges to meet demands


In a show of solidarity, yesterday 300 workers of Kurdistan Textile Company forced the authorities to release their representative, Mr Farshid Beheshti Zad, after warning to break off all talks.

In the negotiations that followed with the full team of six workers’ reps, the management and government officials said they would meet all the demands except payment of wages for the strike period. However, the workers are insistent on this demand and a general assembly of workers is due to meet today, Wednesday, to decide on the next course of action.

Since 24th September several hundred workers of Kurdistan Textile Company, located in the outskirts of the city of Sanandaj, in western Iran, have been battling the management and police in support of a series of demands.

A strike committee of workers has set out the demands as ranging from payment of overdue wages, withdrawal of arbitrary contracts, reinstatement of sacked workers, job grading and annual health checks to improvement in health and safety, payment of a minimum wage of $550/month for sacked workers and return of money (already deducted from salaries) to the workers’ co-op credit fund.

Since the start of the strike, the management has used the security forces to try to break the strike. Last Monday Captain Javad Akbari and 12 other officers entered the factory and read out the names of 10 workers who were to be arrested as ‘trouble makers’. The workers frustrated their attempts by collectively identifying themselves as the named workers and booed the security forces out of the plant. Throughout the strike the workers have held regular general assemblies to add strength to their action.

In January the workers of this company led a successful 16-day strike, receiving widespread support in Iran and internationally.

<h2>德黑兰公交司机今天开始抗议,不收车票</h2>


基于雇主拒绝满足他们的要求,司机们从10月17日起不收公众车票。

司机们要求国有的Vahed巴士公司增加辅助司机以减轻工作压力,增加工资与其他国家雇员平齐,重新聘用被解雇者。

2005年5月,司机工会的一个集会被官办黑帮组织Islamic Councils和Workers’ House野蛮攻击。去年他们一直受着压力。

<h2>Tehran bus drivers begin a 'no-ticket' protest today</h2>


Tehran bus drivers have vowed not to collect tickets from the public from Monday 17th October in protest at the employers' continued refusal to meet their demands.

They are calling on the state-owned Vahed bus company to honour a recent agreement to recruit assistant drivers to lighten the mounting pressure and stress of work, agree to wage parity with other state employees and reinstate sacked colleagues.

In May 2005 a meeting of the bus drivers’ union was brutally attacked by a club-wielding mob from the 'Islamic Councils' and 'Workers’ House' (state-run bodies with the job of spying on workers and keeping protests in check). The workers are pressing for the prosecution of the assailants.

Tehran’s bus drivers have come under constant harassment by the government and employers over the past year whenever they have tried to voice their demands and exercise their rights. They deserve the wholehearted support of labour organisations worldwide.
