John Hanrahan Reports from Istanbul, Turkey
CCU Vice President John Hanrahan participated in LabourStart’s second annual global solidarity conference. On the agenda were issues including social networking, online campaigning, labour law reform and others that focused on specific countries.
The opening business of the conference was for delegates to stand in solidarity at the picket lines with workers at GEA, a German-based company who locked out workers at its factory in Istanbul.
