Advertising producer M&T Reklam began union busting after trade union Birlesik Metal-Is, an IndustriALL Global Union affiliate, conducted a successful organising campaign at both plants belonging to the group. The campaign was in total compliance with national legislation which resulted in certificate of competence issued by the Ministry of Labour in favour of Birlesik Metal-Is confirming the union represents majority of workers for bargaining a collective agreement. However, instead of negotiations in good faith, workers exercising their fundamental rights to freedom of association faced extreme hostility from the company, which has turned against its own workers after they dared to organise a union.
