“A Unionized workplace” is the workplace in which collective agreement provisions are applied.
As is known, employers are receiving daily 3,33 TRY premium refund throughout 2017 for each worker whose wage (earnings subject to premium) were notified under daily gross 110,00 TRY (monthly gross 3.300,00 TL) in 2016, and for each personnel employed in new enterprises established / registered within 2017. (Cabinet Decree: 2017/9865, issued in the Official Gazette on 22 Feb. 2017).
