Strike by Javeh Dam Workers in Sanadaj

HRANA- As of Saturday June 19, 2010, dozens of workers building the Javeh repository dam in Sanandaj have gone on strike.
HRANA reporters have been informed that the workers are protesting months of unpaid wages. Officials state that the purpose for the construction of the damn [which began in April 2009] is to provide water to the surrounding plains and land used for agriculture.

It is reported that over 300 workers constructing the dam have not received their wages since November 2009 and that in March fifteen workers were forced out of their jobs without their wages being paid.
