Roca Sanitario, Stop stalling the collective bargaining process!
Wednesday 27 April 2016
Today, industriAll Europe and IndustriALL Global call on Roca Sanitario to respect fundamental union rights at its Turkish subsidiary, Öznur Pres Makina Metal Sanayi AŞ. Birleşik Metal-İş, the United Metalworkers’ Union, is affiliated to both organisations at European and global levels.
Luc Triangle, Deputy General Secretary, said: “Roca must respect the labour and trade union legislation in its plant in Turkey. Birleşik Metal required legal authority from the Ministry of Labour to act as a trade union and engage in collective bargaining. Yet the company does not recognise this and has dismissed workers’ representatives. This is unacceptable! We demand immediate action by Roca to reinstate the dismissed workers and to cooperate with the trade union in Turkey.”
