United Steel-Work (Birleşik Metal-İş) Union submitted a request to the Council of State (Danıştay) for the ban of a strike by a cabinet decree (see our January Newsletter). The trade union wants the ban order to be cancelled by the Council of State. In the meantime the struggle has been taken to the factory. The United Steel-Work union had announced a strike after failing contract negotiations with the employers’ organisation MESS. Around 15,000 workers started a strike in 22 factories across 10 cities. However, the cabinet suspended the strike for 60 days, saying that the strike was ‘compromising the national security’.
