The International Union of Food Workers is campaigning in support of members of the Turkish Drink, Food and Allied union, TEKGIDA-Is, fighting for trade union recognition with the Sutas Dairy Company.
For the past two years the workers have resisted sackings, police raids, false criminal charges against stewards, threats to family members, strong-arm tactics, and intimidation. In the latest bid to break the picket line, 13 tonnes of liquid manure were dumped on top of the pickets.
Cameron is talking about further anti-union legislation. It seems like the Turkish employers speak his language. ■
