On the morning of Saturday January 2 around 300 contract workers began their protest by remaining in their dormitory and not going to work. They were technical and service workers employed by a tertiary or third-level contractor (i.e., a sub-contractor’s sub-contractor).

After the main contractor intervened, and promises about the payment of wages and bonuses owed to workers were made, the workers returned to work.

There have been many protests by contract workers in the Asaluyeh Special Economic Zone, in Bushehr Province (southern Iran), during the past few months.
