International Labor Day observed in Tehran

Tehran, April 30, IRNA -- A large number of workers held a rally here on Friday on the eve of the International Labor Day, calling for defending the rights of workers.

A number of MPs and representatives of Iran`s labor community delivered speeches on labor law, privatization, the Fourth Development Plan (2005-2010) and temporary contracts.

The workers expressed their discontent with their living standards and job conditions.

Secretary-General of the Labor House Ali-Reza Mahjoub, addressing the ceremony, called for ratification of bills to secure the rights of Iranian workers.

Laws and activities should be directed in a way to support the vulnerable class of the society, he said, adding laws which will not support the real demands of workers cannot be implemented.

Social welfare will be established based on social justice while unjustified privatization has inflicted heavy damage to the country`s economic and social bodies, Mahjoub said.

He called for paying attention to the demands of the labor community and solidarity with workers.
