Underpaid for oil clean-up claims

A group of young people who were hired by AKSA to clean up oil from the beaches following the oil spill at Kalecik, stopped their work in protest.

They claim that the private firm promised them TL90 per day but only paid them TL60, however, AKSA refutes their claims.

The 25 workers stopped the clean up because of the dispute over pay. They have since negotiated their pay with the AKSA management and have been paid TL70.

AKSA General manager Murat Captug says that nobody was promised TL90 and in addition, food and travel expenses had been paid.
