Turkey -Global solidarity for sacked workers -October 30, 2013

Workers from across the globe are keeping up the pressure in support of striking Turkish Airlines (THY) workers who were unfairly sacked by phone, email or text. Aviation workers have been in dispute with THY over their right to strike and the dismissal of 305 workers who took industrial action in May 2012. The latest wave of action, which ran from 7-20 October, aimed to raise awareness of the workers’ situation among THY passengers. THY workers have been striking for nearly 170 days. The action is organised by THY workers’ union Hava-Is. The company refuses to reinstate the 305 and to accept any bargaining proposals put forward by Hava-Is.
