Solidarity

The ITF/ETF was created out of solidarity between striking workers and we still believe that the best way for transport workers to build global structures is by backing other workers in their struggles.

Current Issues:


7 May 2010: ETF supports its Spanish affiliates in the port sector

2 November 2006: ETF shares concerns of Moroccan trade union Union des Syndicats UMT des Transports over the possible dismissal of 2000 dock workers

Trade union rights are human rights: Turkey must release imprisoned trade unionists NOW

Nurettin Kılıçdoğan has been in prison for more than a year, sentenced for over 6 years. His crime? Encouraging workers to join Tümtis, the transport trade union for which he was branch president in the Turkish capital Ankara. Trade unionism is totally legal in Turkey, but his attempts to recruit union members were branded as an attempt “to establish a crime organisation...to recruit members to this crime organisation and being president of this crime organisation”. Several courts have backed Nurettin’s original unjustified conviction, and sadly this case is just one of many that revel an increasingly oppressive reality in Erdogan’s Turkey – four of his fellow Tümtis activists are also still in jail.                               more >>
