Turkish seafarers and Turkish Authorities reach agreement – strike cancelled

As reported in Weekly NEWS No. 34/2007 and No. 35/3007, the Turkish Seafarers Union (TDS) had indicated on 29 August that it might resort to a strike over unsatisfactory wage negotiations with the Turkish Authorities.


INTERTANKO has been informed that the planned strike action has been cancelled since the TDS reached an agreement with the Turkish Authorities. Although this is unofficial information, as 60 days have passed since the announcement and the obligatory six days' advance notice has not been utilised, the strike can be considered as having been cancelled.


The Secretariat would like to thank Dunya Denizcilik Ve Ticaret for assisting in monitoring this issue.
