The global giant, Posco, is one of the world’s largest steel-making companies with factories located all around the world. In Turkey, it has fired scores of union members from its steel plant in Kocaeli, Turkey. The current total of dismissed labour activists stands at 80. As with other large ‘Chaebols’ that originated in South Korea, Posco has a ‘no union policy’. Posco has been involved in bitter disputes before such as in 2006 in South Korea, and more recently in north eastern India. South Korean Posco workers have expressed solidarity with their Turkish counterparts and have urged them to keep fighting.
