Poland -Plea for higher minimum wage -August 26, 2013

Trade union confederation OPZZ wants a minimum wage of 11 zloty (€2.5) an hour, as part of a campaign against so-called 'junk' employment contracts. This minimum should apply to all employment contracts and be enshrined in the country's labour legislation. The joint trade unions have promised a month of protest in September against government policies and 'junk' employment contracts, which give employees no job stability or social insurance rights.
