Mayor Kocaoglu told about the behind the scenes of the İZBAN strike

Mayor Kocaoğlu told the backstage of the IZBAN strike: The collective bargaining crisis in Izmir, which carried the urban suburban line transport in Izmir, was put to a happy end in Ankara last week.

However, the daily strike of 8 both infuriated Izmir and brought political battles. Izmir Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Aziz Kocaoglu, the strike and the aftermath of what happened after the scenes told.

In fact, if we look back, it was obvious months before the strike. Why haven't you intervened before? This is one of the biggest criticisms…

Leaving the exceptions, no union signers before the collective bargaining process ends legally. He surely signs the last minute and tries to get the right to the worker until then. For him, this collective bargain lasted for 6 months, why did you not see it during that time? Toplu the logic of the collective agreement, the process stems from not knowing.

In the last period, friends came, more than 1 week to finish. In other words, like the 29th and 30th of the month… They said, "We are going on strike, we met with Governor Bey." Governor Bey suggested, "If you give 1-2 more points, there is a middle way." At that time, İZBAN administration gave 9.5-10 percent. We said, “If Madem Governor had such a request, let's not leave it in the loophole” and 12 percent was offered. However, it was not accepted again. After that, IZBAN Board of Directors convened on the 7th of the month, that is, one day before the day of the strike. Our first founding general manager, Selçuk Sert, Deputy Undersecretary of the Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications, also attended. They would come to the municipality after the meeting. When the meeting was extended, I phoned, I said, "I am coming" and I came to İZFAŞ. On the way, “Going on strike. Let's make an unexpected proposal. ” I said, "If you find fit, let's give 15 percent." "I suppose this ends," I thought. At that time, Selçuk Bey called Undersecretary of the Ministry Suat Hayri Aka. There was also our Minister Ahmet Arslan Bey. When he said, "The president has such a proposal," he said, "15 percent is very good, offer it." I asked for permission on this, went to my house. I was very tired that day, I left the phone in the living room and slept. I was relieved now. They called me at night, I did not hear. The strike had begun in the morning.


That evening, he said, ”What is the 3 6 month, the year after which 1.5 is what inflation is required?“ Thereupon the contract is left there. Strike. It's a way, after the strike. I would expect 1 week. You evaluate the situation. The strike is also the strike. You try to get the least damage. 1 will meet with the union again later in the week. We think about them, "We'll sit with the union again," he said on a phone call on the afternoon of Thursday. Bülent Delican, Provincial Chairman of the Justice and Development Party, takes the Regional Director of TCDD to the union first and then to the General Manager of İZBAN. From there, he calls me “Let's see Or. The name of it is collective bargaining. We didn't learn that from birth. But Delican doesn't know anything about the job. Otherwise, it's not ”can't Yoksa, it's the matter! Maybe it will do better than us. We don't say anything.

Kocaoglu, Provincial Chairman is very wrong to get this job. Here the employer TCDD and Izmir Metropolitan Municipality İZBAN. Authorized to İZBAN management. The General Manager of TCDD may decide together with the Metropolitan. Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications. TCDD, Minister of Transport, Undersecretary may enter. They were already involved. But it was a movement that increased the expectations and resistance of the union.


Kocaoglu, we will see you all the time. Except for politics. When he called me, I refused the interview request. Then, "16.5, 1.5 so much for this?" He wrote in the press, was drawn. So we sat with friends. Im Let's give 15 the percentage. We already did. 3 6 1.5 months, so 5 year after the bonus 4 days. Let's give 6 day bonuses on inflation in 5's last 4 month. Let's give 1 improvement over inflation at XNUMX month. Artı The union again said maz No way Send.

On Monday, in the 14 of the month, I called the union, "What can we do?" Branch President Hüseyin Eryüz and Secretary İzzet Ceviz arrived. "What do you want? Let's finish it here or go to Ankara. Ya We started talking here to finish. Iler Technicians and operators have low salaries and need to be upgraded, “they said. We made him an offer. They did not accept. From his speeches, I found that the union president and secretary here were not in a position to use the initiative to sign this contract. ”Would you come to Ankara? Mis I said. They said, "We will come." TCDD General Manager İsa Apaydın and I called Selçuk Sert. Orum I want to come to Ankara with the union president and the board of directors. Let's have a meeting at TCDD, but there should be also Demiryol-İş and Türk-İş President Ergun Atalay. T They accepted and sat in Ankara. We have finally concluded the collective agreement as reflected in the press. Then they said, "Let's go to the Minister." We went. That's how it worked, and he started working on Tuesday morning. When I went to Ankara, I did not see Bülent Delican, the President of the Party of Justice and Development Party, nor did I know that he was there. It doesn't have to be.

In addition, Hamza Dag, Atilla Kaya, Kerem Ali I, Necip Kalkan, Huseyin
Kocabıyık never saw our deputies in Ankara. When we got up in the morning, he fell into social media. Bülent Delican is making an announcement and we would like to thank Mr. Prime Minister. We also thank Mr. Prime Minister.


Bülent Delican and our deputies who have never been involved in this issue had their photographs taken with our Minister Ahmet Arslan. In the meantime, we have to break down all the responsibility, such as' Municipality, President Aziz Kocaoglu olduğ, as if TCDD is not the addressee in this collective agreement. Then, "We have solved," he show off, "I will be conciliatory," he syndicating the union and the worker to extend the process of bargaining. What Delican did was not right for me. I didn't see it but I would have taken photos with the deputies of İzmir and Minister Bey. Let me tell you this clearly. Our deputies, CHP, have no contribution. You have no friends.


Here I want to tell a process, what we do, what we are talking about, giving Caesar the right to Caesar. But I'm a simple citizen in 1954, who has been in politics since my family since 6. In the 1954 elections, I handed out a ballot because of family. Our house was a politician's home. I've never seen the 60 in the process of taking such a role as someone who watches the events from the political front, in proportion to its capacity. I've never witnessed it. Izmir public should know this correctly. It doesn't hurt me as a person. I feel sorry for Bülent Bey and his deputies to take on a role like this.

Kocaoglu, I openly, TCDD, the Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications and Prime Minister's front did not feel such a political rant. But Bülent Delican and the deputies had either such an effort, or they wanted to consider Bülent Bey's compensation as a compensation for this false exit in his meeting with the union and İZBAN. No matter how they evaluate it, I don't find it right.


I gave birth of 9 in 8 days. Is it easy? You are stopping a system carrying an average of 270-300 thousand people. İzmir accounts for about 18 percent of its transportation. We combined whatever power we have. For example, at İZULAŞ and ESHOT, our workshop staff will do maintenance day and night without sleep ... We invited all of the drivers to the task. We have commissioned all the drivers we call service drivers. We made overtime. Meanwhile, both our workshop staff and our bus driver friends have made great sacrifices. They struggled to raise their citizens to their jobs, homes, and young people to school. Meanwhile, ESHOT's and İZULAŞ's İBB's strength in transportation have also been tested. A thousand 600-odd buses served. In Bostanlı, both on the morning of the ferry, KarşıyakaWe have spare 2 ferries. IZDENIZ, IZULAS, ESHOT and Metro worked selflessly.
