Turkey -Workers ask commitment from European Bank for Reconstruction and Development -September 17, 2015

After being confronted with a series of unlawful violations, sacked for protesting, forced to work double shifts and spied on through social media the country’s automotive workers and their trade unions have appealed to a major lender to their employers, the publicly-funded European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, to uphold its commitments. The EBRD is now at the centre of the dispute, with workers at three companies saying the actions of their bosses contradict the bank’s promise to honour to labour rights. In a letter, the bank is asked to intervene against union busting and the lack of collective bargaining.
