workers of the Shiraz telecommunications

NCRI - Over 200 retired workers of the Shiraz telecommunications company rallied on Monday outside this factory demanding their retirement pensions.

“We represent over 1,200 retired workers of this company who have retired gradually from 2006 onward. Despite all this, to this day we have yet to receive our retirement pensions,” the protesters said.

It is worth noting these workers staged a number of similar rallies outside the factory last year. The Shiraz telecommunications factory, once considered a major communications industry unit in Iran, is literally shut down now.
