Turkey -Violation of union rights by Swiss multinational -April 03, 2014

Trade unions have demanded the Swiss-based multinational company Georg Fischer to put an end to violations of union rights in Turkey and demands immediate reinstatement of 37 dismissed workers.

Trade unions have demanded the Swiss-based multinational company Georg Fischer to put an end to violations of union rights in Turkey and demands immediate reinstatement of 37 dismissed workers. The Georg Fischer management has reacted harshly against union organising, and so far, 37 members of the Lastik-Is trade union have been dismissed by the local management. The simple reason is that workers exercised their legitimate fundamental rights of freedom of association guaranteed by international labour conventions of the ILO as well as the country’s Constitution and national trade union legislation. Along with this, instead of settling peaceful labour relations at the plants, Georg Fischer management continues to use intimidation and pressure over the union members to rescind their affiliation with Lastik-Is.
