Turkey -Tea plant workers organise largest public sector strike in 20 years -April 22, 2013

Over 10,000 workers at 58 factories of publicly owned tea processing company Çaykur went on strike demanding payment of outstanding wages and compensations for foregone wage increases during the last five years when no collective agreement was in place. Tekgida-Is, the trade union representing the tea plant workers, has written to the employers’ organisation and the government to initiate negotiations in good faith.
