The Polish Confederation of Employers of the Building Industry (Polski Związek Pracodawców Budownictwa PZPB) and the Confederation of the Polish Crafts (Związek Rzemiosła Polskiego ZRP) and trade unions Solidarnosc and ZZ Budowlani have signed an agreement setting a minimum wage in the construction sector. The parties agreed that a worker should not cost less than 10.50 PLN (€2.53) gross or 7 PLN (€1.70) net per hour. The minimum wage was adopted in order to fight exploitation and dumping in the sector. The Cracow region employers’ organisation, the Galician Builder's Chamber, refused to sign the agreement.
