İZBAN management reduced the hike offer, which was previously 30 percent, to 26 percent. There were reactions to the withdrawal of the offer.

According to the news of Metehan UD from Evrensel, İZBAN management, which tries to turn the strike ban into an opportunity, has reduced the 30% hike offer to 26%. While trying to accept the offer by being scared with the High Referee, this offer was withdrawn when the social media reacted to the proposal.

One of the most important networks in Izmir's public transportation with the İzmir Metropolitan Municipality of the Republic of Turkey State Railways (TCDD), collective bargaining negotiations in the joint venture izban clogged and Turk-dependent Railways Workers Union members working in Izmir Branch He was on strike on December 10. The strike was banned on the 29th day by AKP President and President Erdogan, saying it was "disrupting the public transportation services in the city".

While continuing in the 60-day period that started with the strike ban, the union management recently met with the TCDD management. During the meeting, TCDD bureaucrats reiterated their previous offer, which was 26 percent in total. This offer is 22,10 percent for technicians with bare salaries, bonuses, other economic rights; 26 percent for machinists; 24,18 percent for technicians; 22,96 percent for operators; 28,2 percent for accountants; corresponds to 29,38 percent for teller. This proposal, based on the statements of the workplace representative in the information message to the workers, was also withdrawn.


Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Aziz Kocaoğlu called Türk-İş President Ergün Atalay the night before the strike was banned and said that he offered a 30 percent hike. The workers learned that the strike was banned without evaluating this proposal. When the unionists reminded the TCDD bureaucrats about Kocaoğlu's 30 percent hike offer, they received the answer that they were not included in their information. İZBAN management, trying to turn the prohibition of strikes into opportunities, tries to close the contract with the lowest cost by threatening with the High Arbitration Board. With the withdrawal of the last 26 percent hike, there is no official offer. If the contract goes to the High Referee, it can be completed by 4-5 percent.


After the 26 percent offer, an information note was shared by İZBAN stating that the wages of workers exceeded 4 thousand, but the calculations made by the salaries of the workers reveal that this information is not real. In the table announced by İZBAN management, it is claimed that a salary of 4 thousand 136 TL will be given to the technician, while the amount that the worker will receive is 3 thousand 125 TL, while the amount announced by İZBAN is 4 thousand 152 TL for the machinist, the amount that the worker will receive is 3 thousand 75 TL and the amount that the İZBAN announced for the technician is 3 thousand 988 TL. While the amount to be received by the worker is 2 thousand 975 TL, 3 thousand 820, the figure announced by İZBAN for the station operators is 2 thousand 825, the amount that the worker will receive is 3 thousand 773, the amount that the worker will receive is 2 thousand 675 TL for the cashier's teller. . According to the recently termed collective bargaining agreement of İzmir Metro AŞ, the wage gap between İzmir Metro and İZBAN workers is between 32 and 55 percent.


Speaking to Evrensel, the workers stated that it was not logical to not know about the TCDD administration from the metropolitan's proposal, “Kocaoğlu, who did not let İZBAN out of his mouth during the strike, now plays the silencers. After the figures received in İzmir Metro AŞ, which is shown as the closest example to us, business peace can never be achieved in İZBAN. Strikes are inevitable in every collective agreement period. Although Aziz Kocaoğlu accuses us of being AKP's political tongues, the strike was banned by the AKP as a result. They ignored the problems and demands of İZBAN employees for the sake of their own interests. They crushed the worker. No promises have been made to us since 2012. Those who accuse 'children' of our demands are withdrawing their proposals with a 'childish' attitude for our shares. IZBAN's AKP and CHP partners are also united in the prohibition of strikes against workers. At present, he is threatened with the High Referee and imposed. ”


In İZBAN, which operates on 40 stations and 136 kilometers of lines between Aliağa and Selçuk, the collective agreement requests of 343 workers working as machinists, technicians, technicians, station operators, toll booths were able to receive the same salary as other workers in the business line of raising the melting salaries in the face of the economic crisis. . The cost of this to İZBAN is around 34 percent of the budget. The strike witnessed many discussions for 29 days, while the Izmir Metropolitan Municipality administration made statements that would bring workers and the public together, while the TCDD kept its silence. The strike was charged with 'AKP's local election move'. (UNIVERSAL)
