Kemal Türkler

Kemal Türkler (1926 Denizli – 22 July 1980 İstanbul) was a Turkish socialist trade union leader. He was founder and first president of Confederation of Revolutionary Trade Unions of Turkey (Türkiye Devrimci İşçi Sendikaları Konfederasyonu, DISK), and also one of the founders of the Workers Party of Turkey (Türkiye İşçi Partisi, TİP) in 1963.

He worked as a metal worker for a long time. He became president of Turkey's Metal Workers' Union (Türkiye Maden-Iş). He was a leading figure of the democratic trade union movement in Turkey.

Kemal Türkler was assassinated on 22 July 1980 in front of his home in Merter, İstanbul by ultra-nationalist MHP militants.[1]
