Turkey -SF leather fires union members, sues for damages to commercial interest -July 09, 2015

Handbag manufacturer SF leather, amongst others delivering products to luxury brand Mulberry, has fired fourteen workers for joining trade union Deriteks. The company has made it clear it does not intend to reinstate the workers and is additionally suing the fired workers and Deriteks for damages to its commercial interests, caused by the union’s protest rally. Unions have appealed to Mulberry to intervene, but its headquarters have refused to comment, as the court case is ongoing.
