Tuesday, 29 May 2012

The Secretary of the Islamic Labor Council at Iran Tire announced that the Iran Tire Manufacturing Company, which belongs to the Fund for the Suppressed, laid off eighty of its contract workers following a shortage of raw materials needed for manufacturing and cash. The Secretary further stated that the sharp increase in the price of raw materials and the shortage of cash created numerous difficulties for the factory, and its management was forced to downsize the number of employees. He added that 1,250 people are currently employed at the factory, 650 of whom are contract workers. If the problems involving supply of raw materials are not resolved, the factory will be forced to lay off the remaining contract workers.
