Iraq - Unionists transfered after leading demonstrations (2010)

The General Federation of Workers Councils and Unions in Iraq (GFWCUI) issued a statement on 31 October reporting that two workers in the Ministry of Industry (Salim Kadhim and Hatem Mindeel) were transferred from their company (al Zawraa company in Zafaranyya / Baghdad) to a car company south of Baghdad. This was believed to be done in retaliation for their leading worker demonstrations and demanding workers’ rights from the management of the company in which they were elected board members.
