By Khalid Kazimov - Trend:
Some 1000 workers of Safa Rolling and Pipe Mills Co. continued their strike on the third day, ILNA news agency reported Feb. 4.
The report added that the workers congregated on the company's premises on Feb. 3 and demanded the company's authorities to pay their 4-month due wages as well as 16-month due insurance.
The company is located by the Saveh-Tehran highway south of the capital.
The workers of country's numerous factories and companies frequently go on strike for not having granted their rights. For example, last June some 5000 mine workers in the city of Bafq in south eastern Yazd province continued their strike for some 40 days.
