Turkey -Warning over union-busting complicity -January 26, 2013

Global union federations the ITF (International Transport Workers’ Federation) and Uni Global Union have warned the trade union confederation Hak-İş that it is in danger of being used by DHL Turkey as a pawn in a company attempt to prevent workers in the company having a union voice. The two global unions issued the warning following a serious discussion of the grave concerns of the international trade union movement expressed at the meeting of the Council of Global Unions following reports of company attempts to forcibly recruit members into Taşıma-İş, a new union set up by Hak-İş.
