Iraqi oil workers shut down exports

Looks like a 24-hour strike. Over pay, conditions and getting rid of the old pro-Ba'athist management.

"The GUOE has been involved in an industrial dispute with the Southern Oil Company administration, Ministry of Oil and Government since June 20th when workers at the Basra Oil Refinery staged protest action and a lock out. The Union is demanding the removal of high ranking Baathist managers in the SOC and regime loyalists serving in the Ministry of Oil. The Union has given the Ministry of Oil until January 1st 2006 to comply. 15 in total are marked for removal."
