Tehran, Oct. 30 - The head of the Iranian Nurses Union accused the Iranian regime of failing to see to the demands and needs of Irans nurses and threatened nationwide strikes and protests. Mohammad Sharafi Moghadam said that the administration directorate for the countrys nurses is run by a corrupt mafia, and cannot manage and coordinate in an acceptable manner.
The authorities have disregarded our legitimate demands. If they continue to ignore our calls they will force us to change our legal approach and we will seek solutions outside the law to have our demands realized, he added.
He said that over eight months have passed since the start of the Iranian year and still there have been no actions on the part of the Iranian government to see to nurses demands.
It seems that negotiations have hit a dead-end and the only way left forward is for nurses to go on a general strike.
