Federation of Oil Unions in Iraq formed


Federation of Oil Unions in Iraq formed in Iraqby Hassan Juma'a Awwad Al-Assadi, President, Federation of Oil UnionsNovember 4th, 2005

From US Labor Against the War

All are aware of the role that Iraqi labour unions have played in theprevious and present phrases of Iraq's history as the most importantbasis of Iraqi society for development and construction. Unionscontinued with their work until they became the object of a conspiracyon the part of the despotic regime, which stripped them of their rightsin 1987. After the dictator fell, on 20/04/2003, that is eleven daysafter the entry of the occupation forces, activists formed the oilUnion, the first nucleus of which was the Southern Oil Company and theother oil companies. The Union masterfully led the process of buildingand reconstruction and equipping of the plants and oil installations andthe process of improving living conditions and obtaining the rights ofits members. ...Building on what has gone before and in accordance with presentexperiences of Iraqis as part of embodying the practice of democracy forthe new phase, we announce with God's blessing the formation of theFederation of Oil Unions in Iraq, with its centre in Basra, composed ofunions representing the oil sector in Basra, Meisan, and DhiQar, as a Federation specialised in all aspects of the oil sector and part of the movement of Iraqi labour unions.
