Turkey -Strike in public service -May 24, 2012

Public service workers supported by a vast majority of railway workers went on a one-day strike after collective bargaining failed between the three trade unions (Memur-Sen, Kamu-Sen and KESK) and the government. The unions were dissatisfied with the proposal of 3% pay raise. According to the unions further demands on economic, social, personal, professional and democratic issues, such as the right to strike and the improvement of working conditions, were completely neglected.
