Apr 21, 2018 -- The workers of the dam construction project in Piranshahr, western Iran went on strike against the lack of salary payments.
Despite threats from the government of expulsion from work, the workers of the Kani Siv dam in Piranshahr are on the fifth day of their strike as a sign of protest.
One of the workers involved in the project, who spoke on the condition of anonymity for the fear of retribution from the government said in an interview with a news agency that workers on strike had been threatened, exiled and expelled from their jobs by the employer.
The worker announced that the strikers were more than 80 people, most of the heavy equipment and machinery drivers.
The workers have repeatedly protested to the authorities and the employer against not receiving their salary, but they are constantly faced with mere promises every time.
Workers have said they will continue to strike until they get all their salaries and benefits.
