Fighting for rights at Cargill Turkey

Workers at Cargill Turkey have been fighting for their jobs and their rights since they were unfairly dismissed on April 17, 2018 while trying to form a union. The workers have picketed the plant, marched hundreds of kilometres, demonstrated at Cargill's Istanbul headquarters and at the HQ’s of companies that buy from Cargill.

We will keep fighting until Cargill reinstates these workers and respects their right to organize and be represented by Tekgıda-İş.
