Poland - Call for action against Smurfit Kappa’s attack on unions - February 29, 2016

UNI Global Union is calling on its 20 million members to send messages of solidarity to Smurfit Kappa Poland unions being discriminated by management. Smurfit Kappa Poland management has unilaterally ended wage negotiations and announced a pay increase to begin in April 2016 while bringing in a series of anti-union measures. Supervisors have been given special ‘training’ by a firm of lawyers and new rules have been announced for all 5 of Smurfit Kappa’s plants. Talking except on official breaks is banned and the supervisors have been asked to issue warnings; trade union representatives are not permitted to report back to their member and after shift union meetings on company premises are banned.
