Turkey -All out strikes in steel sector ended -August 05, 2013

After half a year of negotiations for a collective agreement, 5000 out of 5300 workers on the Isdemir integrated steel and iron plant went on strike. In addition, 1800 steel workers at the Russian owned Magnitogorsk Iron and Steel Works (MMK) went on strike after a similar failure of collective negotiations to yield results. The workers organised by the Iron, Steel, Metal and Metallic Products Workers' Union Celik-Is reached an agreement after a two weeks strike.
