Over 5800 glass workers in ten factories of the Sisecam group have a new collective agreement. The agreement was reached after a long struggle. The strike that the unions organised after negotiations broke down was banned eight days after its start, as reported in the June 2014 newsletter. The negotiations were also forced into arbitration with a threat of a final decision being taken by the high Arbitration Board looming over the talks. Before the expiration of the arbitration talks, however, an agreement was reached. The collective agreement includes a 14% pay hike, as well as higher bonuses and social payments.
