Turkey -Trade union activists sacked at Istanbul Bilgi University -August 25, 2012

Istanbul Bilgi University has fired 13 support staff, the number expected to rise to 40, motivating the dismissals as redundancies due to the closing of one of its campus buildings. Unions accuse the university of sacking those employees that are union members and activists. The unions stated that while one building closes, another one is opened on the same campus which means that the need to support staff is not reduced at all.
