Turkey -Norwegian support for sacked Turkish Airlines employees -September 14, 2012

Norwegian aviation unions have called on the state-owned Norwegian Investment Bank to disinvest in Turkish Airlines following the sacking of 305 trade union activists. The unions argue that since the blatant violations of workers’ rights by Turkish Airlines, investment in the company would be against the bank’s charter of principles. The Norwegian unions’ support is one in a growing list of solidarity actions by European unions.
