Poland -Woodworkers convened in Warsaw -November 6, 2012

Trade unions organising workers at Swedwood plants in Hungary, Poland, Sweden, Russia, and the United States convened in Warsaw to exchange and discuss strategies in outreaching to workers and engaging in social dialogue with their respective local Swedwood management. An important part of the meeting focused on how the other unions could effectively support the Polish union’s efforts to organise the 9,000 workers at the 11 Swedwood plants in the midst of the efforts to negotiate a legally binding collective bargaining agreement. Key negotiating points for the union are wage increases, occupational safety and health, permanent unlimited employment contracts, and 30 minute breaks.
