DHL accused of union ‘hijack’

[ March 26, 2013   //   ]

DHL has been accused of setting up a company-led ‘yellow union’ in Turkey, say trade unions on the eve of a global DHL Families’ Day in London and Istanbul on 26 March. The UNI Global Union, the International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF), and IndustriALL together with Turkish unions, are calling for the express giant and other multinationals engaged in similar behaviour to be held accountable and to improve workers’ rights in Turkey.

In London a family demonstration will be held from 12:00 onwards outside the German embassy at Belgrave Square.

The unions claim that Deutsche Post-DHL is violating international laws and its own corporate social responsibility standards in Turkey
