Turkey - Nestle workers reach agreement - August 31, 2016

Workers that went on an 11-day strike at a Nestlé factory (see the June Newsletter) in the north western province of Bursa concluded a collective agreement. The agreement, which covers more than 900 workers, includes a mechanism for an extra 45 workers to be made permanent. Trade union Tekgida-Is also signed an agreement with Nestlé Waters in July which applies to more than 500 workers. Both agreements provide for significantly improved wages and social benefits and most importantly provide collective bargaining protections and union representation for more than 1400 workers in the food-processing sector.
