The Islamic Labor Party (Persian: حزب اسلامی کار‎) of Iran was founded in 1996 by the leaders of the Workers' House, Alireza Mahjub, Soheila Jelodarzadeh, and Rahman Tajaldin. After dissolving the previous decades of union workers[why?], home workers from labor organizations within the Labor Party were branch members of the Islamic Republic, thus removing support for the powerful Communist groups opposed to the system.

Founders[edit]

The people involved in founding the party are: Alireza Mahjub, the Tehran representative in the Iranian Parliament, Soheila Jelodarzadeh, a representative of Tehran's Fifth and Sixth Houses, and Rahman Tajaldin Isfahan representative of the Fifth House.
