23rd regular session of the Human Rights Council
Exclusion keeps Iranian workers in poverty For workers participation in trade unions is an effective and well-honed tool to escape poverty, exploitation and the violation of their basic human dignity. Despite the fact that Iranian law recognizes the rights of workers to set up trade organizations and unions, the government has resisted and seriously opposes and prevents efforts by workers to set up independent organizations in support of their rights and demands. Progressive workers, who have worked to set up Syndicates and unions, have been harassed and pursued legally. Meanwhile poverty among Iranian works has increased recently.
