Turkey -Mulberry supplier accused of bypassing labour law -September 24, 2015

Trade unions are confronted with a raft of intimidation methods at SF Leather that block workers from joining the union, and 14 sacked union supporters have not been reinstated. They accuse the company, a supplier to Mulberry, from trying to bypass the labour law, and bust the union with the Law of Commerce and Code of Obligations. Mulberry excuses its inaction by saying that audits have been conducted at the supplier. However, no audit at SF Leather ever consulted the trade union concerned, nor were the findings and process of the audits made public.
