Multinational sacks union members

Submitted by Anon on 20 February, 2005 - 3:55

Management of the Norwegian multinational Jotun in Turkey have sacked all 50 members of Petrol-Is union in an attempt to smash the organisation.

Workers at the factory in Tekirdag near Istanbul have organised a picket line and refused to let anybody work inside. Ten new workers who were hired by the management stopped to work immediately after they were warned of the problem. The workers and Petrol-Is are asking Jotun to stop the union busting and to re-hire the dismissed workers.
