Turkey - Dismissals for workers who want to unionise - November 30, 2016
Trade union Birleşik Metal İş has members at several Schneider factories in Turkey. After organising members at Günsan Elektrik plant, owned by Schneider Electric, the union applied to the ministry of labour for what is called a Majority Certificate in order to form a workplace union. Management’s response when they found out was to unceremoniously sack seven of the workers leading the organising efforts. The anti-union practices are continuing, with management having one-on-one conversations with workers whether they have joined a union or not.
