    , head of the General Union of Mechanical, Press, Energy and Mining Workers, Abbas Zweer Al-Atwani, confirmed that the inspection committees are following up on the situation of workers in brick factories in Diyala, some of which are in violation of the law, pointing to raising a proposal to the Ministry of Labor to raise the minimum wage to 600,000 dinars.


    A report by Rudaw Media Network highlighted the poor conditions of workers, including children, in the brick factories in the Nahrawan region, where working hours reach 12 hours per day, and 11 of them contracted cancer last year, and 3 others died.

    Today, Saturday (January 14, 2023), the head of the General Union of Mechanical, Printing Press, Energy and Mining Workers, Abbas Zweer Al-Atwani, told Rudaw Media Network that “inspection committees that include representatives of the General Federation of Trade Unions, the Ministry of Labor and industries federations follow up on brick factories and the issue of social security periodically, But the delay is on the part of the employers, who demand that the worker not appear before the inspection committees.” 

    He explained that "the Iraqi law stipulates 350,000 dinars as a minimum monthly wage, but some employers are violating this law," noting that "companies that contract with the government to clean hospitals give the worker a wage less than the legal minimum, and the government is aware of this violation of the law." Where the worker gets 150-200 thousand dinars instead of 300 thousand dinars.

    He stressed that "the Ministry of Labor is cooperating with the General Confederation of Trade Unions with regard to labor relations, and the disclosure of violations by the employer and some companies," noting that the reports of trade union committees are submitted to "Social Security or to the Labor Inspection."

    Abbas Zuhair continued, “Law No. 31 of 1978 stipulates the necessity for employers to allow trade union committees to inspect, detect workers registered with Social Security, and record violations in the fields of environment, occupational safety, and wages, which are matters that we follow up and submit reports on to the Ministry of Labor every 90 days. a day.”

    Regarding the possibility of raising the minimum wage, he revealed that a proposal had been submitted to raise it to 600,000 dinars, suggesting approval of 500,000 dinars per month.

    And he went on to say that employers oppose increasing workers' wages, the minimum level of which does not fit the current situation in which the worker lives, indicating that the proposal was submitted to the Ministry of Labor, with the knowledge of the Ministry of Finance and all concerned authorities, and that the Ministry of Labor will take the decision regarding it.

    about the numbers of foreign workers. The head of the General Union of Mechanical, Printing Press, Energy and Mining Workers said that they are conflicting, explaining that they "enter for the purposes of visiting and treatment and remain in the country, and the employer exploits them, because the Iraqi worker asks for a wage of at least $500." Or 500-600 thousand dinars per month, while the foreign worker works for 200-300 dollars.

    He pointed out that "the foreign worker is crowding out the Iraqi worker who is subjected to a media attack," and the issue of wages and working hours are two reasons why employers prefer the foreign worker who works for periods of up to 14 hours, while the Iraqi worker wants to abide by the 8-hour working hours approved by the law.   [/rtl]
