While İZBAN workers continue to strike for their rights in İzmir, CHP İzmir Deputy Tacettin Bayır said, 'This raise rate makes the business world hostile to Aziz Bey. The private sector and public employees who heard this hike will naturally request a raise at the same rate, 'he said.
CHP Izmir deputy Tacettin Bayir, Radio Ege, Election 2019 program, Erhan Gölbey and Action Aslan answered questions.
Speaking about the strike carried out for the rights of İZBAN workers in İzmir, Bayır said that Aziz Kocaoğlu did not want to make the bosses an enemy to him.
“It is necessary to determine the sides of the event correctly. On the one hand, we have brothers and sisters who want to get their labor. Certainly, their grievances must be remedied. We have no objection to this. Aziz Bey suggested a 25 percent raise rate. If Izban employees were paid as much as those in Istanbul, they would not make a noise about this ratio. There was no strike. Aziz Bey does not give this money out of his pocket. He gives it with our taxes, from the people's money. Aziz Bey could have said, 'Think about the mayor who will come to my place.' But he did not do that, ”said Bayır,“ This raise rate makes the business world hostile to Aziz Bey. The private sector and public employees who hear this hike will naturally request an increase at the same rate. The industrialist, the employer is not in a position to give this, he cannot pay this increase. There is no environment to handle this. It is necessary to look at the event from this point of view, ”he said.
Proposing that the workers should take a break from seeking their rights until the elections, Bayır accused the workers and said, “I call out to my working brothers and sisters and offer a common formula. 'Let's not make this happen during the election period. Accept 25%. The difference is, let's sit down and talk with the new mayor on April 1. Let's not make the people of Izmir a victim. In addition, although they are right about this, they will be wrong. 'Why is this strike happening only in Izmir?' he will question our citizens, ”he said. (Source: sol.org.t is)
