CHP Chair Kemal Kilicdaroglu met with custodians by video conference on May 21 to urge them to protect their right to organize in order to fight against violations of their rights.

Custodians, who are typically responsible for cleaning, shopping, and other tasks in apartment buildings, are forced to leave home for work while everyone else can stay home during the coronavirus pandemic, said the CHP leader.

Kilicdaroglu had earlier directed party officials to reach out to non-CHP voters and deal with their problems. His video conference with custodians – who hailed from both AKP and CHP leaning provinces like Ankara, Bursa, Istanbul, Sivas, Usak, Adana, Maras, Sakarya, Erzurum, and Rize – evoked President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s regular meetings with village and neighborhood heads, mukhtars.
