There has been an uproar because the government is determined to implement its decision regarding a 2 per cent cut from the six-month cost of living allowance paid in July, in spite of the fact that this decision has been rejected by the constitutional court. Over 70 thousand employees have been influenced by the cut.
Government officials have reportedly decided to prepare a law to implement the cut which is included in the protocol signed with Turkey.
Citing statements made by chairman of the Civil Servants Union (KTAMS) Guven Bengihan, the trade unions, on the other hand, are focused on continuing their struggle in the streets and at the judiciary.
Bengihan also said that the minimum wage was “unacceptable” and that the fact that the new minimum wage is 2,958 TL nett, while the breadline is 3,167 TL.
