The European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) is deeply concerned at threats by the Turkish authorities “to repress” strikes and peaceful demonstrations called for by Turkish trade union organisations protesting at mass arrests and police violence against peaceful demonstrators in Istanbul.
The Unions’ response to closing down ERT –public television and radio broadcasting – is a 24-hour general strike. The GSEE and the ETUC express solidarity with ERT employees.
