Turkey -Renault Turkey has to respect labour rights -November 19, 2012

Solidarity from unions abroad was initiated after a walk-out staged by workers during a night shift at a Renault facility in the north-western province of Bursa. The workers, who accused the management of Turk Metal, the ‘yellow’ union entitled to collective bargaining at Renault’s Bursa plant, of collaborating with the employer, staged a sit-in outside the management building and called for the leaders’ resignation. Renault management in Turkey fired 23 workers following the protests. CGT Metal, one of France’s trade unions active at Renault’s plants, demanded the management rehire the fired workers and claimed that Turk Metal is not chosen freely by the workers.
