Response to Strike Delay in Transportation from Unions: A week after the end of the İZBAN strike, which negatively affects mass transportation in İZMİR, the Council of Ministers was given the right to postpone a strike in urban transportation.
One week after the end of the İZBAN strike, which negatively affects mass transportation in İZMİR, the Council of Ministers was given the right to postpone a strike in urban transportation with a Decree Law. The Izmir Metro, which entered the mediator process due to conflict, and the municipal bus drivers, whose negotiations have just begun, will include the KHK, which will affect the possible strike decisions in İZELMAN.
There was a reaction from DİSK.
In Izmir, at the beginning of November, 300 workers went on strike for 304 days at the joint company of TCDD and Izmir Metropolitan Municipality, which carries 8 thousand people on the suburban line between Aliaga and Torbali. Workers did not work for 8 days at İZBAN A.Ş., where a strike decision was taken due to a dispute in collective bargaining negotiations. IZBAN passengers were victimized. Although Izmir Metropolitan Municipality has launched additional bus services, the passengers had trouble. The crisis was resolved after the meeting of the Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communication, General Directorate of TCDD, Izmir Metropolitan Municipality and Türk-İş, Railroad-İş, and the strike ended.
THE MINISTERS OF MINISTERS
One week after the end of the İZBAN strike, the Council of Ministers was authorized to delay the strikes and lockouts in urban transportation with a Decree Law No. 22 published under the state of emergency on November 678.
KHK was called:
“A legal strike or lockout that has been decided or started; If the general health or national security of the metropolitan municipalities is disrupting the urban public transportation services, economic or financial stability in banking services, the Council of Ministers may postpone the strike and lockout for sixty days in this dispute. The delay period begins on the date of publication of the decision. ”
DECISION OF THE CONSTITUTIONAL COURT BY-PAS
The unions reacted on the grounds that the decision of the Constitutional Court, which canceled the prohibition of strike in urban transportation in 2014, was bypassed with the Decree and that the decision was an obstacle to workers' rights. After the end of the İZBAN strike, the head of the Türk-İş-affiliated Railway-İş Union İzmir Branch, which focuses on the collective bargaining process in İzmir Metro A.Ş. is the re-establishment of the prohibition of strikes. "Do not strike, be willing to settle for urban transport" is said to the unions and workers. "
DEMOCRACY AND OCCUPATION
DİSK Aegean Regional Representative Memiş Sarı said that the prohibition of strikes, which they had been fighting for years and canceled with the decision of the Constitutional Court 2 years ago, was brought back with the Decree under the state of emergency. Sarı stated that this decision is an obstacle to democracy and workers' rights and that they will fight for the lifting of the strike ban.
