Global Action: Support Fired DHL Workers in Turkey

For more than a year, the Turkey Motor Vehicle and Transport Workers' Union, TUMTIS has been organizing workers at DHL Turkey. So far, over the last year, 20 workers have been fired for attempting to organize a union. Sacked workers are currently standing outside the warehouses in an act of resistance over their unfair dismissal. TUMTIS has made every attempt to engage local management and seek a resolution to the ongoing dismissals, but to no avail. Local management continues to tell workers that they must resign from TUMTIS or they will lose their job. The workers demand the right to become members of TUMTIS, and organize a union in their workplace, free from intimidation and threat of dismissal.
