A group of teachers working on contracts gathered Sunday morning, January 8, 2017, in front of the clerical regime’s parliament in Tehran. The teachers, including a considerable number of women, converged in Tehran from different provinces across the country.
A protester said, “We want justice in employment. We want determination of our employment status.” She added, “Those who have gathered here have a work experience of at least 8 to 10 years with a bachelor’s or master’s degree, yet their employment status is still undecided.”
The contract teachers carried placards which read, “Attend to our situation.” They demanded determination of their status and payment of their wages. (The official IRNA news agency – January 8, 2017)
