International Action to back UPS workers in Turkey
The International Transport Federation (ITF) is running a campaign to support over 150 UPS and UPS sub-contracted employees in Turkey, who have been sacked for either being a trade union member or at least a sympathiser. Other UPS employees have been subject to severe intimidation, including physical threats, to force them to leave their union TÜMTIS - which affiliated to the ITF.
ITF and TÜMTIS are calling on UPS to:
Re-instate the dismissed workers
Stop further harassment and victimisation at the workplace, and
Enter into a formal dialogue with TÜMTIS to establish a sound industrial relationship
