Turkey - Hugo Boss continues with serious breaches of labour rights - April 30, 2016

In March, Hugo Boss dismissed an employee who supports the Teksif trade union organising at her factory. The German-based brand has also increased pressure on two other leading union members. The objective is clear: frighten workers away from joining a union. Based on earlier disputes the Boss corporate management told IndustriALL, its affiliate Teksif and multiple third parties that it will remain neutral in the Teksif organising drive in Izmir. But at the same time intimidation, threats, harassment and dismissals continue against workers who support the union. The highly critical Fair Labour Association report published in January 2016 highlights a long list of serious violations of Turkish Law, the FLA code of conduct and Hugo Boss’s own code of conduct at the Hugo Boss plant in Izmir.
