He stated that no agreement could be reached due to the fact that the numbers offered by the banks have been included in the tenders after the promotional negotiations they have been conducting for a long time in Adana for the benefit of the education staff working in the affiliated institutions institutions Adana Provincial Directorate of National Education was far below expectations, far from the perceived economic realities, and the desired competitive environment was not formed.Education-Bir-Sen Adana Provincial President Mehmet Sezer made statements on the subject.
President Sezer said: “We believe that our education staff, who have been beneficial to our nation and state with great dedication, both during the pandemic period and during the earthquakes that hit 11 provinces, including Adana, and became the Disaster of the Century, victimized by the banks in the promotion issue, and we regret to see that they are not getting the value they deserve”; He emphasized that in response to these developments, 4 trade unions have taken decisions together with 5 industry presidents.

Sezer explained these decisions as follows;

  • 1. Yapı Kredi Bank, with which a promotion agreement was signed in four central districts of Adana (Seyhan, Çukurova, Yüreğir, Sarıçam), is expected to take a positive step within 10 days as a sign of goodwill to address the grievances of our 20,000 education staff and their families.
  • 2. We declare that if the expected action of Yapı Kredi Bank is not implemented by 5:00 PM on Tuesday, April 4, 2023, our emergency action plan, which includes individual and mass actions that we have previously determined, will be implemented.
  • 3. To ensure that education workers are more widely represented, our previous call will be repeated and other trade union leaders will be invited back to our meetings.
  • 4. In this process, all measures and all kinds of work are done to ensure that our education staff receive the promotion they deserve.
