Poland -Children hand out cards asking Tesco’s not to dismiss their parents -June 14, 2012

On Children’s Day, Solidarność trade union picketed Silesia City Center Mall in Katowice to protest against mass layoffs at Tesco’s Poland. Children of the employees delivered cards to the company, asking its management not to dismiss their parents. Tesco’s has started dismissing the first of a total of 1000 employees that will be made redundant. Meanwhile, the collective labour dispute continues, in which Solidarność is calling for limitations on the number of redundancies and a social plan for those who are laid off. Solidarność also accused Tesco’s of offering far worse working conditions in Central Eastern Europe than to its employees in Western Europe.
