Majority of Effective City Measures Are Dependent on Services Done by Workers

  2021 May 03 Monday:

According to Shahr News, during the ceremonial of International Workers’ Day, Pirouz Hanachi, Mayor of Tehran, while esteeming the day, said: “There has been a history of reference to virtues of work and endeavor passed on to us in the accounts of the Prophet of Islam and Ali Ibn Abi Taleb, one in which it is specifically mentioned not to delay a worker’s payment. We try to have the same view in Tehran Municipality.”

After attending to the Prophet’s view on hardworking hands, he explained the circumstances of the naming of The Workers’ Day, and added: “On May 1st of 1887 in Chicago, workers struck and demanded fewer working hours; an event that triggered a clash between the workers and the police which lead to the arrest of many of the workers, and consequent death sentence for 5 of them; one of whom committed suicide before his execution.” 

Hanachi continued: “The same process of strikes continued on in different countries, and in 1946 took its turn in our country in Kermanshah, and ended in 14 deaths and 120 casualties. The day became a symbol for adjudication of workers.”

While expressing that the relation of municipality family to the issue of workers is mostly through contractors, he said: “70% of the effective city measures are dependent on services done by workers; such services as the ones in green areas, plazas, cemeteries and so on; and we should try our best not to leave the whole issue to contractors.”

In his mention of Ali Ibn Abi Taleb’s command to Malik Al-Ashtar on enriching people, he reminded: “This issue is in direct relation to conditions of investment and economic improvement which we hope for. Where it concerns the workers in the municipality, reports have been passed and notifications made in government offices to compensate for the hardships of fire workers. We are also following up on changing the contracts of those employees with long years of service to permanent employment contracts.”
