Turkey's economy in the first months of 2020 was already alarming. Unemployment was rising and wages were decreasing. Workers remained vulnerable to Covid-19's medical and economic consequences. «Workers continued to work while the authorities were doing stay-at-home campaigns. Thus, Covid-19 turned into a working-class disease» says Kivanc Eliacik, International Director of the turkish trade union confederation DISK. DISK published a couple of scientific Reports and Studies about the impact of the pandemic on the economy, employement and workers´ right and the situation of Trade Unions in Turkey. Kivanc is going to present and discuss this topics and further more in this Zoom Meeting.

Kıvanç Eliaçık is International Director of the Turkish trade union federation DISK (Confederation of Progressive Trade Unions in Turkey)
