The World Federation of Trade Unions, representing 92 million workers all over the world, strongly condemns the ban of the glass workers’ strike under the pretext of ‘threat to national security’.
The government of Turkey proves once more its anti-worker character, the postponement for 60 days of the strike, practically means that the workers of Şişecam, Turkey’s biggest glassware company, have to submit to their employer’s demands regarding the collective bargaining process that started on December 12, 2016.
We express our solidarity to the workers of Şişecam and their trade union, Kristal-İş, and we call them to continue their struggle for collective contract despite the government’s ban. The workers with their militant stance have the power to overthrow any obstacles put by the governments or the employers.
