Poland - Union pursues legal challenge over employment cuts - May 19, 2011

The Solidarnosc union is backing a legal challenge to government legislation that allows for a 10% cut in employment in public administration. A key part of the union case is that while the cuts might deliver savings in the short term, their long-term results would have a negative impact on public services. Solidarnosc organised a demonstration outside the hearing.
