The average age of TCDD workers has exceeded 55: Yakup Aslan, the head of the Kayseri-İş Union, Kayseri Branch, said that TCDD workplaces have not been recruited for 30 years, and the workload of existing workers has increased. If the workforce deficit of our workplaces is not completed within 55 month, we will stop the work as of January 1, 22. "
Branch President Aslan stated in his statement in front of Kayseri Station that the work load on the workers has increased in TCDD workplaces in recent years since no new workers are recruited. Aslan said, “Our workers have not been recruited for 30 years, and the places of our retired workers are not filled. For this reason, the workload of our current working colleagues increased day by day. The average age of employees in the workplace is over 55. If the workforce shortage of our workplaces is not completed within 1 month, we will stop the work in our workplaces as of January 22, 2016. So we will come to work, but we will not work. ”
Indicating that the overpasses built by Kayseri Metropolitan Municipality pass by the Railway-İş Union and the train station and prevent the appearance of the buildings, Aslan said, “I call these overpasses the 'Freak of the Century'. Those who sit on the left and right of these overpasses, this freak project imposes us curse from the balconies. They are trying to overpass my union, the plot, the gate entrance. I will do my best to show my duty and reaction. I will give the Metropolitan Municipality to the court within the legal period ”.
