500 workers of Haft-Tapeh Sugar Cane factory on strike

Five hundred workers of the Haft-Tapeh Sugar Cane factory are since July 29th on strike. 

They demand:

1- Review and implementation of job classification at this factory.
2- Dismissal of five factory board members, who have two jobs. One of them is Borzoo Ahmadi, who is the former chief of the Intelligence Bureau of city Shushtar and made significant contribution to the dismissal of protesting workers of this factory in 2007 and 2008.
3- The current CEO should remain on job. Farshid Momen Gharib has a long period of employment with the company and there is a rumor about his dismissal.
4- Non handover of Haft-Tapeh Sugar Cane Company and the company housing to the revolutionary guards. 
5- End of terrorizing atmosphere at this factory, which is in place since 2007 and led to dismissal of many protesting workers and board members of the Haft-Tapeh Sugar Cane Company union such as Ali Nejati, Fraydon Nikufar, Mohammad Heidari, Jalil Ahmadi, Reza Rkhshan, and Ghorban Alipour.
