(en) fau bern ch - Migros Turkey: Union Members fired! (de) [machine translation]
Thu, 8 Apr 2021 10:00:25 +0300
"Hello All, ---- We are Migros warehouse workers from Turkey, who have been
forced to work for many years under a 16-hours-a-day arrangement without any
occupational health and safety measures in place. Inhumane working conditions
have been enforced by excessive levels of mobbing and several forms of oppression
including sexual harassment. ---- We were put on unpaid leave on the grounds of
nothing official but becoming union members under the unpaid leave regulations
that were introduced at the onset of Covid-19 pandemic. ---- We have been made
redundant under Code 29[¹], on the grounds of violating principles of good faith
and ethical behaviour, on 50th day of our resistance against our employment
contracts having been suspended, and the "unpaid leave" attack which resulted in
removal of free access to healthcare services and transport, as well as free
education for our kids.
We are resisting:
for the right to unionized and secure work.
against mobbing, harassment, and other forms of workplace oppression.
for having occupational health and safety measures in place.
for implementation of labour law.
against usurpation of labour rights since the start of the pandemic.
We all know that we will WIN!"
Assembly of Migros workers on resistance
In Turkey, codes determine which benefits such as unemployment benefits or
payoffs can be received. Code 29 is rather unusual, as it means that dismissed
workers do not receive payoffs or unemployment benefits. It is extraordinarily
often applied to women. Code 29 is therefore not only often sexist, but also
anti-union in its application.
