ICEM Supports IFOU in Today’s Oil Industry Strike in Basra
At 6:30 AM this morning, 4 June 2007, oil workers struck the pipeline company in Basra, Iraq, bringing an immediate stop to the free flow of oil products, including kerosene and gas through pipe number 42.
The pipe transfers oil and gas to Baghdad and the governorates of the central region of the country. The workers are members of the Iraqi Federation of Oil Unions (IFOU).
The IFOU, previously known as the GUOE-Basra, and led by President Hassan Jumaa Awad Alasady, has over 26,000 members throughout the ten state oil companies operating in the south of Iraq.
The union has a past history of strike action in defense of its members, and the oil industry as a whole of southern Iraq.
The ICEM, the global union federation of national energy unions throughout the world, supports the IFOU in their strike action today.
