Turkey -Turkish Mint strike into second month -August 26, 2013

Workers at Darphane ve Damga Matbaası (a Mint & Stamp factory, producing gold, coins and security printings like passports, ID cards, driving licences, official stamps and banderols) went on strike on 8 July over wages, working conditions and trade union rights. With the strike entering the 40th day, 205 workers continue to be on strike despite strike breaking and union bashing practices of management. On 22 August the labour minister announced that the wages will be increased in line with demands. This direct involvement from the side of the government may put an end to the strike.
