On April 11, the factory's management tried to create division among workers by paying last year's bonus to part of the striking workers. But the workers announced that they would not end their strike until every one of them received their payments in full.

In the meantime, the workers at Zaabal Sugar Cane Factory, on the road linking Shooshtar to Ahwaz, Southwest Iran, went on strike in protest against non-payment of their salaries and last year's bonus. Their salaries have not been paid since mid-December 2007.
