Social Dialogue matters
The Turkish Confederation of Employer Associations (TISK – Türkiye İşveren Sendikaları Konfederasyonu) is the major actor in the Turkish industrial relations on the employer’s side. Founded in 1961, it was the result of a cooperation attempt by six employers’ organizations. It currently counts 23 distinct employer organizations as its members and can claim to represent over 9200 enterprises. The current president of TISK is Tugrul Kudatgobilik.
Role in social dialogue institutions
TISK represents the interests of its members in various national and international social dialogue institutions such as the economic and social council, the labour council, the high arbitration board, the tripartite consultation board, the minimum wage board and many others.
Internationally, TISK has representatives in the ILO, BusinessEurope, BIAC, IOE, UMCE and UBCCE.
