Poland -Coal miners organise 24 hour strike -October 25, 2012

Coking and steam coal miners at JSW SA went on a 24-hour strike after talks failed to resolve a conflict between management and workers. The recently privatised coal producer has unilaterally introduced a number of unfavourable measures for new workers that the unions demand be retracted. The management intends to impose contracts violating the national labour law as well as the previous agreement with the trade unions. Unions are also asking for a 3.8% wage increase.
