Take action to free imprisoned union leaders and activists in Iran

The Committee for the Defence of the Iranian People's Rights (CODIR) has called upon the labour and trade movement internationally to take urgent action in defence of Iranian workers and trade unionists who are engaged in a difficult struggle for better pay and conditions of work.

CODIR regards the current period as an important opportunity to put effective pressure upon the government of President Hassan Rouhani, who was elected last year on a promise of reform inside Iran. Since his election Rouhani has tried to show a different face internationally, resulting in the interim agreement on nuclear inspections.
