Workers in Turkey face continuing repression

The last few years have been very tough for workers in Turkey with union busting at companies such as Turkish Airlines and Punto Deri. Georg Fischer Hakan Plastik, a global Swiss company, has now also embarked on this path as it has recently dismissed 37 workers for union related activities. This stand by the company has to be seen within the context of the social struggles of the last year where repression against activists has been widespread.
