The strike has fuelled momentum behind the nationwide protests which have called for the leaders of the Iranian regime to be deposed.
British comedian Omid Djalili, who is of Iranian descent, shared a clip of the walkout on Twitter.
He described the workers as “hugely brave” and added the employee’s decision to abandon their posts was “extremely significant”.
Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, has celebrated strikes among the labour force.
She wrote on Twitter: “Hail to the striking oil workers and labourers. I urge all workers and youths to support them.”
The NCRI, which was first founded in 1981, is a political organisation which has consistently called for a revolution to bring an end to the Islamic Republic.
Rajavi accused the current Iranian government of fuelling unemployment, high prices and poverty as she branded the regime “anti-worker”.
