Poland -Unions united against precarious work and pension reform -September 11, 2013

The three largest trade unions, Trade Unions Forum (FZZ), the All-Poland Alliance of Trade Unions (OPZZ) and the NSZZ Solidarnosc, have organised a four-day demonstration against the government’s labour market policies. The unions demand a withdrawal of a law that will make more flexible contracts possible, the rejection of the pension reform that will increase the retirement age to 67 and a higher pay for workers across the board. The demonstrations are estimated to have mobilised up to 100,000 people.
