Hur-Is trade union: 50 thousand foreigners work in the private sector in the north


Turkish Cypriot daily Halkin Sesi newspaper (11.08.17) reports that a delegation from Hur-Is trade union visited yesterday Cemal Ozyigit, chairman of the Social Democracy Party (TDP).

In statements during the visit, Hur-Is trade union’s general secretary Ali Yeltekin said that 92 thousand persons are employed in the private sector and that 45-50 thousand of them are foreigners. He noted that they should not bring labour force from outside in sectors, in which enough qualified labour force exists in the occupied area of Cyprus. Yeltekin described the employment in the subcontracting sector as one of the most important problems in the occupied area of the island and added that the “state” should “produce a policy” as regards employment.

In his statements, Ozyigit said that in case his party comes to “power”, they will take the necessary steps for the unionization in the private sector.
