Turkey - IndustriAll backs up unions - May 31, 2016

In the seventh edition of its magazine Global Worker the global trade union IndustriAll dedicates a long background article on the trade union situation in Turkey. The legislation on trade unions and collective bargaining sets thresholds for collective bargaining certification. A union that wants to sign a workplace level collective bargaining agreement must organise at least 1 per cent of the entire workforce in that industrial sector. In the meantime, there are also workplace level thresholds of 50 per cent, and for companies with more than one workplace it is 40 per cent. With unions under pressure to defend workers in a climate of consistent anti-union behaviour the magazine looks at how transnational campaigns provide them with the solidarity and space they need to organise and to start negotiations.
