Workers who were not given compensation pays protested Turkey's one of the biggest market chains Migros on July 3 in İstanbul. They were fired on June after Migros bought the shares of Uyum and Makro markets.
Fired workers of Uyum and Makro markets, bought by Turkey's one of the biggest market chains Migros, protested Migros for the violation of their labour rights. The workers met in front of a branch of Migros in a shopping mall in İstanbul on July 3. Noting that Migros is the legally responsible party to give their compensation pay, the workers called on the people to boycott Migros for their illegal and unjust actions.
The workers also noted that while the markets deal with banks for debt restructuring, they did nothing about their compensation pays.
The general secretary of workers' union Nakliyat-İş Ali Rıza Küçükosmanoğlu addressed to the people during the protest, noting that the capitalists have been oppressing workers for the stability of the system.
CONSTRUCTION WORKERS PROTESTED EMPLOYERS ON TOP OF CRANE TOWER
Another resistance of workers against labour rights violations happened at a construction site in İstanbul on July 3. Five workers who did not get their wages protested their employers by getting on top of a 60 metres crane tower. The workers stayed on top of the crane tower for about 3 hours, saying they will not get down until they get their wages.
During the protest, one of the workers who blacked out for a short time was saved by his co-workers. Fire brigades, ambulances and a medical team arrived at the scene to take measures.
The workers ended their protest after their employers affirmed to pay their wages.
