Poland -Confederations withdraw from social dialogue -January 25, 2012

In an unprecedented move the three trade union confederations (Solidarnosc, NPZZ and Forum) have agreed to withdraw from tripartite social dialogue working groups and to challenge the Prime Minister on the government’s failure to comply with legislation on social dialogue and convene regular meetings of the tripartite commission. The unions argue that the government has a constitutional duty to take part in the social dialogue and not just in the working groups that have no decision-making role.
