On 19 February, shipyard worker Cemil Akgul died through electrocution. This was the 120th death in the yards since 1992. This death came dispite the campaign by the Turkish shipbuilding union LIMTER-IS SENDIKASI to get the Turkish government to enforce existing health and saftey legislation in the yards. The Turkish union would welcome British trade unions sending similar letters of protest.
