Turquía - Undermining collective bargaining in the Turkish civil aviation (2010)

On 13 January, the International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF) protested against the government attempt to undermine the collective bargaining status of its affiliate Hava-Is, the Turkish Civil Aviation Union, which is the only aviation union in Turkey representing pilots, cabine crew, maintenance workers and ground staff since 1962. Their collective bargaining status was suddenly threatened by a newly forged alliance between Celik-Is, a metal workers’ union, and Turkish Airlines Maintenance Centre THY Technical (hold at 49% by the government). This would have been detrimental to the workers, as Celik-Is does not represent maintenance workers.
