İZBAN workers continue their strikes for a fee. The workers want support from the people of İzmir to end the strike quickly.

İZBAN workers continue their strikes for a wage that cannot be at all. Strike 2. leaving the day behind, workers are determined not to work without meeting their demands. İZBAN management, which has blocked the demands of the workers since the first day, has not yet been called to the union. While the people are victimized by this attitude, workers are waiting for support from the people of İzmir in order for the strike to end quickly.


We talked to İZBAN workers in the strike. Levent Akman, who works as a machinist, touched on the importance of driving and shift compensation requests. We have been demanding them for years, but we can't. We wanted a hike slightly above the inflation rate. This is not possible for us to accept. We do the same job TCDD, Marmaray, Ankaray get lower compared to them. The offers they offered throughout the contract also melted. We weren't favored. The people we contact face to face are positive, but especially in social media, it is not possible to understand the reactions and the people who give these reactions are like us. We do not want to be the victims of İzmir, but our only strength is the strike. Give them as much support as possible. We are determined to continue our strike until our demands are met Biz.


Kıvanç Tuncer, who works as a station operator, stated that they wanted their new contracts to be formed according to the conditions of the day and said: Our aim is not to be rich, but to live a human figure. 9, who has been working since the establishment of this place, does not want to think that we will still receive the minimum wage. I'm fighting to get what I got. We use our right of constitution, we have no other sanction power. Both TCDD and other institutions of the metropolitan area we are paid less. I'm sure that Izmir people will understand us when they compare. Everyone will put your hand on your conscience. The input and output of the institution is certain. We're not partners here. Forced to work under poverty and hunger is nothing to understand. We have nothing to lose. Bizim


Sercan Tumbar, who is working in the last wage in the group of mechanics, has a very low salary, said Sercan Tumbar. Living conditions are obvious. Even though I'm qualified, I get a minimum wage. The money we get is melting. Not to be affected. Our living standards have fallen. I can't do what I want even though I work at my wife. Usually passengers have a reaction because they are victims. There is a perception in the public about the high salaries we receive, but when we tell the truth, they believe and give us rights. We expect support from the people of İzmir. We're on a deal. This can be achieved faster with the support of the people, Bunu he said.


Abdil Acar, who works as a machine technician, also stated that the last net salary was 1890 TL and said: “We can't handle anything anymore. I paid 229 lira for electricity. I do not use air conditioner at home. However, I paid this money. I have two children who are studying. Everyone is minus 4-5 thousand liras. You can't ask for a loan from anyone in order to survive. We're Bread From Here kazanWe love İZBAN. We are also pleased to work at İZBAN. We don't want a share of the pie, we just want the reward of our labor. It seems insufficient and we try to make our voices heard, and we do this with strikes. We solve this problem with a strike. The people of Izmir do not want to be victims, but we are victims too. Everyone has families, children. Let us be right. Let them come and look at our payrolls. There is a crisis in this country right now. While I receive this salary, no one should expect any sacrifice from us. They are telling us to go on strike by force. We couldn't agree on the table for 5 months. We don't have much to lose either. We are not holding back from it. The people of Izmir should support us.”


In İZBAN, which is one of the main transportation arteries of the city and carries 400 thousand people a day, only a few subcontractor machinists go out at certain times of the day at long intervals. However, during these trips, there is a problem due to the insufficiency of technical personnel. The shutters of the stations are being downloaded outside of the service hours. Izmir Metropolitan Municipality is trying to solve the problem with an additional expedition, but this is not enough especially during working hours. Some of the citizens' traffic with their own vehicles increases the density of the roads.


The strike, which started after the 4th period TIS negotiations between the bureaucrats of Izmir Metropolitan Municipality and TCDD joint venture İZBAN and Demiryol-İş Union, left its 2nd day. 343 workers, who work as machinists, technicians, technicians, station operators and box office workers, participate in the strike. In the 6th term collective bargaining agreements lasting for 4 months, no agreement has been reached in the 63 articles of the 24-article draft, which are important for workers. While the members of the Railway-Labor Union demanded a 27 percent net increase for the first year and an inflation rate for the second year, the İZBAN management proposed a 22 percent increase, including all social rights. IZBAN bureaucrats imposed bonuses for 112 days against the 95-day bonus demand of the workers. Again, an agreement was not reached in the demands for driving and shift compensation, which are among the demands of the workers.


IZBAN is owned by State Railways and Izmir Metropolitan Municipality with its 50 profit share. After the first meeting of the Turkish State Railways and the Izmir Metropolitan Municipality's collective bargaining agreement with the Demiryol-İş Trade Union, the İzmir Branch of the railway has sent a minimum of 3345 TL. İZBAN management did not accept this amount. Upon this, Demiryol-İş İzmir Branch decided to strike.

And finally the strike started. It was obvious that we will talk about this in the workplace today. With the İZBAN workers on strike today, we wanted to share with you what the railway workers say to this strike. SohbetWe start like this. "Have you heard that İZBAN workers went on strike?"


One of the workers, ve İZBAN workers are right to strike in order to get their rights. They get maximum 2000. What do the workers do if they don't go on strike? How can they get so low salary? 10 must be at least 3000 TL for the annual İZBAN worker and they are right to strike. X

Then the other worker entered:. İZBAN is already taking the whole burden of İzmir. It facilitates the transportation of Izmir. It is very easy to make this transportation is a very low amount of money because they are employees. How can you afford such a low salary in metropolitan Izmir? We support the workers of İZBAN, who, as railway workers, strike for their rightful demands.
