In İZBAN, where no consensus could be reached in TİS negotiations, the first week was behind in the mediation process, and a flash came from Hamdullah Giral, Head of the Izmir Branch of the Railroad-İş Union.
Izmir Metropolitan Municipality and the Republic of Turkey State Railways (TCDD), partner companies and urban transport, which is the lifeblood izban in the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) negotiations ended on 24 January. The mediation process started as of February 5th when there was no consensus between the employer and the employee in the TİS meetings. The first week of the mediation process, which officially has a 15-day period, has not been reached yet. Making statements about the point reached in the process, İzmir Branch President of Railway-İş Union, Hamdullah Giral, made a call to İzmir Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Tunç Soyer and TCDD General Directorate.
'DO 330 IZBAN WORKERS BRING THE LOAD?'
Speaking about the point reached in the process, Izmir Branch Head of the Railway-Is Union, Giral, said that they are behind their demands. Giral said, “The mediator met with the employer this week, and he will hold a meeting with us on February 15th. We stand behind our demands. We say; Tell us something close to us and we will create a fair pay and just social package. But unfortunately, there are general managers who try to keep the wage increases to a minimum. We're talking to payrolls here. The İZBAN worker wants to support his family with his salary. It is necessary to ask whether 23 İZBAN employees among 18 thousand municipal employees and approximately 330 thousand TCDD employees bring a load. We will stop after our justified demands, ”he said.
A CALL TO TCDD AND SOYER
Calling TCDD General Directorate and İzmir Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Tunç Soyer, Giral said, “Both Tunç Mayor and TCDD General Directorate should intervene in this process, and they should not leave the work only to bureaucrats. Bureaucrats are fighting, "How can I pay low wages?" The laborer has a stubborn attitude to avoid sweating. It is not possible to get anywhere with this attitude. Mayor of Metropolitan Municipality Tunç Soyer and TCDD General Manager should take the initiative ”. (izgazete)
