LC Waikiki workers win their rights

The action of the dismissed LC Waikiki workers against the working conditions paid off.

12 cleaning workers employed by the subcontractor company Kluh were dismissed at the LC Waikiki warehouse in Esenyurt, Istanbul, on the grounds of "Code 46" for opposing the harsh working conditions.

The workers started an action in front of the warehouse together with their trade union, the Shipbuilding and Maritime Transport, Storage and Warehouse Workers' Union (Limter-İş) affiliated to the Revolutionary Confederation of Trade Unions (DİSK).

'Resistance pays off'

Limter-İş announced that the actions of the workers yielded results in a post on its social media accounts. The post read: "At this stage, our resistance has achieved gains. Today [Sunday], on the 19th day of our resistance, our demands were accepted and a protocol signed between bosses, company officials and our colleagues. Once again, we saw that only workers who unite and resist can win their rights."
