The Workers' House (Persian: ? xâne-ye kârgar) is the Iranian de factonational trade union center affiliated with the World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU) and a registered reformist worker's political organization/labour union. It oversees and coordinates activities of Islamic Labour Councils.
In 1998, Worker's House stated that 1/3 of Iranian workers were its members, however there is no independent verification for this claim.
International Labour Organization (ILO) recognizes the dependence of the union on the government. After confrontation with the Government of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the union has been losing its state-supported status.
The union also operates the Iranian Labour News Agency (ILNA) since 2002 with an aim to 'inform dissemination for the toiling stratum of labourers, and with justice-centered discourse as its motto'. Work and Worker daily is also published by Ali Rabiei, a key member.
