President of Chamber of Mechanical Engineers Çakar: TCDD Law Does Not Observe Public Interest
Supporting the action taken by the Railway Employees Platform on the new TCDD bill, Ali Ekber Çakar, President of the Chamber of Mechanical Engineers, said the law does not respect public interests. Making a written statement, Çakar said, “The law aims to fragment the TCDD and incorporate it, to liberalize the transportation network, to adopt the business model that considers capital-market interests instead of the understanding of public service, to sell TCDD immovables, and to put the employees into a flexible-insecure working form.”
