Poland - Long-term pay deal for dockworkers - April 30, 2016

The dockworkers’ trade union section of Solidarność and Deepwater Container Terminal (DCT) Gdansk finalised a collective agreement. The agreement brings an end to a bitter three-year dispute that has included complaints from the union over victimisation and harassment by the employer and the firing of union leaders. There has been support from the global trade union community with demonstrations at DCT Gdansk and in other European countries targeting the bank that owns the port. The historic agreement, valid until 31 March 2019, covers pay rates, hours of work, holidays and general conditions for 600 workers at a fast-growing new terminal. A second terminal is due to open next year and the workforce will grow to 1500 workers as the port seeks to become the main gateway to Russia and central Europe.
