On the 2nd day of the Congress, our President Pevrul Kavlak took the floor within the framework of the IndustryALL Global Action Plan. Stating that there are important problems in Turkey as well as in every region of the world due to the Covid-19 epidemic, President Kavlak touched upon the activities of our union Türk Metal during this process and said: Thanks to the protocol we signed with the employers' organization, not a single member of ours was dismissed.  And there was no deduction in his pay. In addition, upon the detection of Covid-19 cases among our members, we added an additional article to our complementary health insurance application in our collective bargaining agreement and included the treatment costs of our members who were ill due to this virus.

Touching on the organizational activities of Salcomp Xiaomi, where our union Türk Metal has been in an intense organizing struggle recently, he said, “We continued our organization efforts intensively during the epidemic period. We organized 24 thousand employees in 62 new workplaces. These include multinational companies and supply chains. However, we experienced some problems in these organizations and we still do. We have to fight very seriously. Finally, our friends at the Chinese company Salkomp Xiaomi have been spending their nights in front of the factory for days. We had to stop work on Monday because the employer put pressure on our members and dismissed 125 of our friends because they were unionized. If deemed appropriate, I request our Congress to take a decision on this issue and make a call.”

Stating that many situations, especially the Covid-19 epidemic, will cause problems in the coming period, our President ended his words as follows: “We have the Covid-19 epidemic and many other important problems. To cope with these challenges, we need a strong and cohesive IndustriALL Global Union. It is our greatest expectation that IndustriALL will be strong and help us affiliates during these difficult times.”
