Izeh, Iran, Aug. 07 – More than 3,000 teachers and civic employees at Khuzestan province’s city of Izeh who have not been paid since they were hired as long as three years ago are petitioning for the back wages.

The employees, who were hired in 2007, 2008 and 2009, sent the petition to the then-provincial secretary, reminding him that they still have not received some of their wages and sick leave payments.

 “Considering the current rate of inflation and after 36 months on the job, is it not time to receive our salaries and bonuses?” they asked.

Wages of janitors and office administrators have also been completely ignored during these years. In 2007, overtime payments have not been made even for people who worked as many as 14 hours a day. At the same time, they have not received housing subsidies.

Over the past three years, three ministers of education have changed, but the issue of overdue wages has still not been addressed, the employees claim.
