Using the government’s so-called preventive measures against the Covid pandemic, the Migros grocery outlets’ bosses are forcing the workers to take unpaid leave. The owners and managers threaten and insult the workers who refuse to accept the so-called temporary leave without pay.

Protesting the unpaid leave, the workers have been gathering for the last 73 days in front of the Migros warehouses and the Anadolu Group headquarters, the corporation that owns Migros.

Secret and plainclothes police follow the union leaders from the DGD-SEN that represents the warehouse, shipping port and stevedore workers. They are routinely stopped on the street and searched.
