Since years the members of the Tehran and Suburbs Bus Drivers union “Vahed” are intimidated by the employer and the regime. Following this anti-workers policies Mr. Hassan Saidi a union's member has been fired on November 17th. Two other union members Mr. Wahid Fereidooni and Mr. Nasser Moharamzade were fired during the last two months. .
Their crime is defending their and other workers’ rights against the systematic and continuous aggression of employers and regime.
I condemn this aggression against the workers and call on workers and labour activists to hinder the dismissal of worker activists in Iran.
