Poland -Strikes ruled out until after the Euro 2012 tournament? -May 25, 2012

The confederation of railway trade unions KKZZ has ruled out a prospective strike. Following a general assembly of union delegates the union declared that the battle for security on Polish tracks would continue, but not during the tournament. A non-fatal crash in the week of the assembly together with an earlier fatal collision and other less critical incidents stress that change is urgently needed. Piotr Duda, head of the Solidarność trade union, has indicated that he will not resign from all protests, in spite of appeals from both the government and adverse public opinion.
