Real solidarity

It would have been nice if the UNISON conference had managed a word or two of solidarity with Iran’s struggling trade union movement, one of whose leaders, Mansour Osanloo of the Tehran bus workers’ union, was in London recently to meet with the International Transport Workers’ Federation– a case of genuine solidarity.

Osanloo and other Iranian labor activists have been frequent targets for arrest and imprisonment by the Tehran regime.
