Turkey -Court approves association right -November 03, 2014

The Constitutional Court has abolished some provisions of a law that prevented workers from organising in trade unions.

The Constitutional Court has abolished some provisions of a law that prevented workers from organising in trade unions, but experts remain cautious, as significant challenges to workers' rights to organise remain. The court cancelled several provisions of Law No. 6356 on trade unions and collective bargaining agreements. However, a major hurdle still blocks unionisation by workers: the nationwide threshold of 3 percent required for the unions to bargain collectively for members' wages and working conditions.
