Members of Turkish Public Workers Labour Union (Kamu-Sen) started hunger strike in Eskisehir and Samsun provinces on Monday.

Warning
In Eskisehir, 15 members of Kamu-Sen started hunger strike. Holding a news conference prior to the starting of the hunger strike, Kamu-Sen trade union's Eskisehir Representative Ibrahim Dursun said that they decided to go on hunger strike for three days as a warning to the government and they asked employment, reasonable salary and more democracy.

Rights
Dursun said that civil servants would not give up searching for their rights, adding that they would also carry out activities like giving up work.

No compromise
Members of the trade union in northern Samsun province also attended the hunger strike which started as no compromise was reached in collective bargaining talks between the government and trade unions. A total of 14 trade union members and one tradesman joined the hunger strike.
