A THY cabin crew member said: "I am on strike because our rest periods have been cut from 36 hours to 24 hours for long haul flights. I am on strike against being forced to fly exceeding maximum flight duty hours."

THY workers with the backing of the ITF family have succeeded in scrapping the ban on the right to strike from aviation legislation. But the fight is not over.

Support the 305 and their union, Hava-Is, call on THY and the Turkish government;

1. Stop the use of strike breakers
2. Put health and safety first
2. Reinstate the 305 sacked workers and stop union busting

A THY worker on strike said: "I decided to join the strike above all to support my friends who were dismissed on 29 May 2012 just for defending our basic rights. We still have the right to strike thanks to the struggle waged by our friends sacked on 29 May."

 Hava-Is workers are strong in their resolve for union rights, see them in action here:
