EPSU intervenes to support municipal workers

Turkey Turkey

(September 2016) EPSU has written to the major of the Aviclar local authority in Istanbul calling on him to reinstate 43 workers who were sacked earlier this year without good reason. The workers have been campaigning for reinstatement for over four months with support from the local community and at national level from their union Belediye-Is. EPSU has also called on the mayor to negotiate with the trade union and the local worker representatives (see letter).

Update: The union has reached an agreement with the city council that will result in the reinstatement of dismissed workers (7 October 2016).
