Turkey -Collective bargaining in a cul-de-sac -May 13, 2013

Collective bargaining between Türk Metal Union and Turk Metal Industrialists’ Union (MESS) has come to a deadlock. The trade union is considering a strike within 60 days and has warned that workers will protest against the employers through several actions in the meantime. The negotiations on the collective agreement concern 115,000 workers employed in Turkey’s top automotive, white goods, electronic and iron and steel industries, in addition to other large sectors and public servants’ labour agreements. It is the largest and most significant collective labour agreement. The union is demanding an 18% increase to every worker’s salary for a six-month period.
