Poland - Unions support law on Sunday rest - November 30, 2017

If lawmakers approve a bill under consideration in the national legislature, this could gradually end Sunday shopping in the next three years. The bill was initially supported by trade unions and received support from the Law and Justice Party, the ruling party. The lower house, the Sejm, passed the bill by a vote of 254 to 156. It still requires approval from the Senate and the President. The bill would allow Sunday shopping only on the first and last Sunday of each month through the end of 2018, then allow shopping only on the last Sunday of the month in 2019. The total ban of all Sunday shopping is planned from 2020.
