In the TÜRASAŞ factory, subcontractor workers, who were employed with a low salary, despite doing the same job as permanent workers in wagon manufacturing, applied to the Provincial Directorate of Sakarya Labor and Employment Agency to determine that they were employed as a collusion.
The lawyer of the subcontracted workers working in the wagon factory Av. Muhammet Işık, in his statement; He stated that the wagon subcontractor workers are shown as if they are working in side jobs, even though they work in wagon manufacturing, which is the main line of business in the workplace, and this is against the current legal regulations. Işık said, “Although subcontracted workers do the same job in the same place as permanent workers, low wage is the usurpation of the individual and collective rights of subcontractors. For this reason, we made our application to the Provincial Directorate of Sakarya Labor and Employment Agency in order to determine that the clients are employed under pretense ”.
Işık said, “In addition, while all workers working in the paint unit are required to work for a maximum of 7,5 hours a day by law without discrimination, and while permanent workers benefit from this right, subcontracted workers continue to work 9 hours a day.
The lawsuits we have filed for overworking continue. Although the clients are members of the Demiryol-İş union, the union remains insensitive to these problems of the subcontracted workers, leaving the agency workers alone in this struggle for rights. We expect all laborers and non-governmental organizations in Sakarya to support subcontracted workers working in the Wagon factory. "
