Turkey - Petition to drop trade unionists’ convictions - March 31, 2017

Global transport union ITF has demanded the unconditional withdrawal of convictions against 14 union members caught up in government moves to outlaw trade unionism in the country. More than 4,000 people have already signed a new online LabourStart petition to demand justice for the imprisoned unionists. The moves come after the supreme court upheld the sentences, despite previous appeals against the verdicts by the ITF and TÜMTİS.
