Prime Minister Irsen Kucuk intervened personally to help resolve the conflict between EL-SEN and government departments. EL-SEN has been busy today, cutting off electricity from large sections of the government, because of non-payment of bills.
Mr Kucuk met with Mr Cesurer, the head of the EL-SEN union earlier today and promised that he would personally look into resolving the non-payment situation.
After their meeting Mr Cesurer said that while waiting for the Prime Minister’s proposals and as a gesture of good faith, no further government departments would be cut off. However he insisted that those that who already had their electricity supply cut off would remain that way and that starting tomorrow his union members would be concentrating on large non-payers in the private sector.
