Turkey: Reinstate municipal workers in Aliağa

In partnership with the Confederation of Progressive Trade Unions of Turkey (DISK), Genel-İş - the Public Services Employees Union of Turkey, Public Services International (PSI) and the European Federation of Public Service Unions (EPSU).

The Aliağa Municipality of Izmir, Turkey, is dismissing trade union members without any legal basis. In addition to dismissals, the newly elected mayor is also forcing workers to resign from their union and to join another one. Workers have been affiliated to DISK/Genel-İş Union since 1998. 
The number of dismissals reached 187 on July 24.  The workers have been picketing since the 20th of May. They demand reinstatement and respect for trade union rights and freedoms.
