Poland -Silesia region general strike might turn national -April 24, 2013

The trade unions that organised a two-hour general strike in the Silesia region, reported in the March 2013 newsletter, have now warned they will resort to a nationwide general strike if the government fails to address trade union issues in its labour law reform. The trade unions have repeatedly expressed themselves against so-called ‘junk contracts’ but talks with the government on 24 April 2013 failed to yield any agreement.
