Turquía - No health and safety or social security for shipyard workers because of lack of government backing for trade union rights (2010)

2009 was another disastrous year for Turkey’s shipyard workers. The DISK-affiliated Harbour, Shipyard, Shipbuilding and Repair Workers’ Union Limter-Is reported 15 workers died during their work on a Turkish shipyard, most of them at the notorious Tuzla shipyard, 50 km away from Istanbul. The Limter-Is chairman Cem Dinç blamed the powerlessness of the unions on the government’s indifference.
