In Turkey, collective bargaining for 5.5 million officials and pensioners has ended with an agreement that ratifies a significant decrease in purchasing power. The increases agreed upon are far below the demands that were presented by the trade unions (not only KESK!) and are derisory compared to the 45% inflation that the country is experiencing. Moreover, the fight against precariousness and the tenure of contractual workers are absent from the measures taken. The same goes for all the demands specifically concerning women workers.
The KESK confederation is calling for a one-day national strike on 27 August.
The member organisations of the International Labor Network of Solidarity and Struggle support this strike and are making it known!
