Summary

On 22 September 2021, the Federation of Somali Trade Unions (FESTU), the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) and Internationational Transport Workers Federation (ITF) submitted a specific instance alleging that Favori LLC, a Turkish airport management and ground handling company and subsidiary of the Kozuva Group, had not observed the Concepts and Principles (Chapter I) and Employment and Industrial Relations (Chapter V) provisions of the Guidelines.

Specifically, the issues relate to the operation of the Mogadishu International Airport, and the refusal to recognise workers’ free choice of trade union and bargaining representative. Additionally, the submission raises a failure to observe Somalia’s national law for industrial relations.
