Turkey -Court forbids Turkish Airlines’ strike-breaking actions -July 09, 2013

The Istanbul Labour Court has ruled that attempts by Turkish Airlines to hire new workers to replace those cabin crew on strike, is a strike-breaking action and therefore forbidden. Since some 1,600 crew personnel went on strike in May, Turkish airlines has hired 700 new workers and drawn more crew members from its SunExpress joint venture and an Indian partner. The court ruled the hires undermine the strike action and must be undone. The crew personnel who are on strike are demanding higher pay, fewer flight hours and the reinstatement of 305 former colleagues who were fired during a previous strike.
