The Federation of Trade Unions of Basra organized on Wednesday a ceremony to celebrate the International Workers' Day.

Jassim al-Salihi, head of the Federation, affirmed the need to activate the laws of work and social solidarity for workers and to limit the spread of foreign workers.

There are efforts with the department of labor and social affairs to activate inspection committees in work sites, to spot the violations of some companies owners against the workers' rights, Salihi said.

Director of Basra's retirement and assurance department Abdul-Jabbar Turki urged the relevant authorities to legislate laws that protect the rights of workers, including reducing foreign labor to provide more opportunities for local workers.
