The Turkish government has banned strikes by aviation workers, and sacked 305 workers via text, email and phone. Despite these and other apparent attempts to break Hava-Is the workers are determined. Together with their union and their international trade union family they are fighting back.
“For us this is a question of all or nothing. We will either win or be smashed. There is no other option as we have no intention of becoming a non-functioning union.”
Atilay Aycin, Hava-Is president
Join us in calling on Turkish Airlines THY and the Turkish government to:
– Reinstate the 305
Here are 4 things you can do right now, regardless of where you work:
- Deliver a protest letter to your local Turkish Government representative
- Find out where THY flies to and let passengers know who they are flying with, give them this ‘Brutally Yours' leaflet
- Let THY know you want justice, find their corporate office and deliver this appeal
- Demand the reinstatement of the 305 here
Important: send us details of your campaign actions – this includes pictures and film – let’s show Hava-Is and the 305 they are not alone, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Spread the word – tell your members, fellow workers, friends, family, THY passengers about the plight of the 305 sacked workers and Turkey’s draconian laws to muzzle its workforce.
