Turquía - Union busting in the glass industry

Members of Kristal-Is at glassmaker company Düzce Cam have fought over four years for union recognition. We recall that in 2015 the Turkish Ministry of Labour issued an official document recognising Kristal-İş as the legitimate workers’ bargaining representative at Düzce Cam. However, instead of entering into proper dialogue with Kristal-Is, Düzce Cam management challenged the certificate issued by the Ministry of Labour and tried to undermine the union. The glassmaker has used various union-busting tactics, including dismissal of 80 union members and nominated union representatives.
