Turkey - Ismaco garment workers win recognition, collective agreement - December 31, 2015

Workers at the Ismaco plant have won a hard fought collective agreement. The workers, organised by garment union Deretiks, started fighting for labour rights at the Ismaco plant, a supplier to top Italian brand Ermenegildo Zegna in 2012. After a long battle, the union was finally recognised early 2015 and received ministerial authorisation to start collective negotiations in June. The negotiations have now paid off and the plant’s first collective agreement was signed on 27 November.
