Turkey -Texim textiles ceases anti-union activities -November 4, 2012

Textiles manufacturer Texim announced that it will cease its resistance against organising in its plants. Fired activists from the Textile, Knitting and Garment Industry Workers’ Union (TEKSIF) will be reinstated at higher wages and receive full salaries for the four months they organized picketing lines; workers choosing not to return will receive compensation packages. As a result of its activities since 2010 TEKSIF has now organised over half of the Texim workforce and can apply to the ministry for certification that will allow them to become official partners in collective bargaining. Texim produces clothes for Hugo Boss and Pierre Cardin.
