DESA Workers Win Case
Help Them Get Their Jobs Back

Almost a year to the day since DESA workers began their struggle for union recognition, the Supreme Court in Turkey has confirmed that 18 of the workers sacked by the Turkish leather factory had been illegally dismissed as a result of union organising. The Supreme Court rulings represent a significant victory for the DESA workers, including worker-organiser Emine Arslan.

Take Action Now Tell DESA buyers, which include Prada, M&S, Debenhams, Mulberry, Nicole Fahri, Jaeger and Aspinalls, that DESA must respect freedom of association by giving the illegally dismissed workers their jobs back today and negotiating with the union.
