Support 98 health care workers of Maltepe University

The hospital of Maltepe University in Istanbul dismissed 98 workers, for being members of the Progressive Union of Health Workers on 6 December 2014. The workers joined the union to seek to improve their working conditions in the hospital. They demanded higher wages, promised for several years, and shorter working hours. Several of the sacked workers were working in the hospital for more than 10 years and received several awards. There are disabled workers as well as couples among them, leaving families without income.

Those workers have been walking on picket lines for a month, often in freezing temperatures, and have now called for an online campaign to put pressure on the hospital to reinstate them and to recognize their union.

Please join the campaign and sent a protesto letter to the management of hospital. Please circulate it.

You will find campaign text in 10  different languages.

Thanks to those who sent more than 5000 protest letters during the firt 24 hours.
