The General Leader of the Confederation of Turkish Tradesmen and Craftsmen (TESK), Bendevi Palandöken, said in a written statement that the tradesmen from Bağ-Kur receive the lowest pension with the highest number of premium days, and that there is a need for a beautification such as the additional indicator arrangement made for civil servants in Bağ-Kur pensions. promised.
Stating that Bağ-Kur pensions remain very low under current conditions, Palandoken said:
“While SSK employees retire with 7200 premium days, our tradesmen and craftsmen from Bağ-Kur have to fill 9,000 premium days. Our shopkeepers receive the lowest pension despite working without weekends or holidays.
With the latest regulation, the base price was increased to 5 thousand 500 liras, and 3600 additional indicators were adjusted for civil servants. However, starting from 3 thousand 500 liras, the pensions of Bağ-Kur employees are very low.
The pensions of our tradesmen and farmers from Bağ-Kur, who are the hardest working segment of the society and make a living by selling the works in their shop, should not be below the minimum price.
According to the union of norms in social security, SSK, Bağ-Kur and Retirement Fund have merged, so pensions should be equalized. It is against the equality principle of the constitution that Bağ-Kur members, who pay the longest number of premium days, receive the lowest pension.”
