Turkish union sends support to London DHL picket

Members of the RMT union striked in Neasden from 00:01 to 23:59 on Monday 22 October in protest at being paid less than their colleagues at DHL’s Enfield, North London base.

Alen Clifford, ITF organising globally assistant coordinator, has been closely involved with the Turkish protests. He delivered the message and good wishes from workers in Turkey represented by the Tumtis union who have held non-stop picket lines at DHL bases in Istanbul for 128 days in protest at sackings and victimisation of DHL workers in Turkey.

Alen Clifford commented: “We are pleased to be able to deliver the personal greetings and pledges of support from the beleaguered Turkish workers staffing ongoing picket lines to their colleagues in London. Both groups are united by a wish to see simple justice govern their workplaces.”

Bob Crow, RMT general secretary, stated: “RMT welcomes the international support for our DHL members in Neasden which is a great example of the trade union movement operating across national borders to take on a massive global player in the transport and distribution industry.”
