Turkish Renault Factory Strike

Approximately 5,000 Renault factory workers in Turkey stopped production activities during their shift between 4pm and midnight on Thursday, and have refused to return to work at the factory since, the Dogan news agency reports. On Friday morning, more than 1,500 Bursa province night-shift workers, refused to start their shift and staged demonstrations in the courtyard of the factory. The workers, who complained about low salaries, demanded an executive of the factory show up and deliver a statement. The workers said they could not get an executive from the company to hear and address their problems. The employs also said that a labor union recently managed to get the workers in another car factory a 60 percent raise in their wages. The workers said that they were being treated unfairly compared to the competing workers. The Bursa factory normally produces 400 cars each shift.
