Turkey manufacturing workers win better conditions

As reported last week, the auto manufacturing hub of Bursa in Turkey saw widespread actions by tens of thousand of auto workers. They were demanding better wages and conditions. While the campaign is still continuing, some workers have already managed to win better deals, especially in relation to wages. The significance of these strikes is that it was carried out against the yellow union which was legally covering the workers, and that it won the support and solidarity of workers from other sectors.
