Groupe Bel: Respect collective bargaining rights & end the strike





We work at Bel Karper in Turkey. And we began our strike on May 17, 2021.

For 6 years we have fought for our union, IUF affiliate Tekgıda-İş, to be recognized.

The courts have ruled in our favour, but Groupe Bel, the French transnational dairy company, refuses to negotiate.

We are demanding our right to negotiate a collective bargaining agreement.

We are asking all global allies to join with us in solidarity. Together we will win.

Please SIGN BELOW to send an email to:

Groupe Bel CEO, Antoine Fiévet: afievet@groupe-bel.com
Groupe Bel Executive Vice President, Cécile Beliot-Zind: cbeliotzind@groupe-bel.com
Groupe Bel Human Resources Director, Vincent Tarraube: VTARRAUBE@groupe-bel.com
Groupe Bel Greater Turkey Cluster General Manager, Aytekin Yıldız: ayildiz@groupe-bel.com

to demand that Groupe Bel begin negotiations with IUF affiliate Tekgıda-İş immediately.

Groupe Bel would never attempt such brazen union-busting in France. We cannot tolerate it in Turkey. We thank you for your support!

Solidarity,
Bel Karper workers, IUF affiliate Tekgıda-İş

Here is the message you are sending:

Dear Antoine Fiévet,

I have been informed by the global union federation, the IUF, that workers at Bel Karper in Çorlu, Turkey have been on strike since May 17, 2021 because your company refuses to enter into negotiations for a collective bargaining agreement.

I have also learned that Groupe Bel spent six years and considerable expense in a legal fight to obstruct the wishes of its own employees to be represented by their union Tekgıda-İş. The court’s final judgement was in the union’s favour and yet Groupe Bel continues to prevent its employees from accessing their rights to organize and to collectively bargain.

I call on you to recognize the legitimate right of your employees to be represented by their union and to enter immediately into good faith negotiations with the union with the objective of establishing a collective bargaining agreement and ending the strike.

Sincerely yours,
