Turkey -Rally against attempts to ban aviation strikes -May 29, 2012

In a protest against the government’s plans to ban strikes in the aviation sector thousands of aviation workers went on the streets in Istanbul earlier this month. The workers, represented by the Hava-Is trade union, protested in front of Turkish Airlines’ (THY) general management building. They were calling for an end to planned legislation that singles out Hava-Is, the only aviation union in Turkey, by banning strikes in the industry. The action was followed by a strike and work slowdown at Istanbul’s main airport that forced Turkish Airlines to cancel more than 100 flights.
