Turkey -Strike in copper-zink mine -November 04, 2015

Workers at the Canadian-owned Çayeli mine, the largest copper and zink mine in the country went on strike over a pay dispute on 30 October. Trade unions and management have been negotiating a new 3-year collective agreement without success. To reinforce their wage demands, workers have now called a strike. Trade unions said the mine has been profitable and its outlooks for the next three years were good, justifying a substantial wage hike for its workers. During the strike, the mine will operate only on levels required to guarantee environment and safety.
