Turkey - Renault fails to meet agreed workers representation - March 31, 2016

Following an agreement made between IndustriALL Global Union, its affiliate Birlesik Metal-Is, representing the overwhelming majority of workers at the Oyak plant, and Renault management, workers at the plant were to hold elections on worker representation on 29 February. The agreement, which includes the composition and duties of a Social Dialogue Committee (SDC), was the result of discussions on employee representation and the right to hold elections. However, the Renault management cancelled the elections just days before they were scheduled to take place, hiding behind the argument of having pressure from the ministry of labour and social security who had labelled the elections illegal. In addition, the car giant immediately dismissed ten workers, including two spokespersons.
