(en) Poland: WI* Solidarity demonstration in Lodz

Date Fri, 13 Oct 2006 09:33:47 +0200

After many months of protest, on the 26th of September 2006 the
Labour Court in Lodz delivered the verdict in case of Slawomir
Skrzypczak. The chairman of the committee of All-Polish Trade
Union Workers' Initiative in the Uniontex S.P. company in Lodz has
been fired on December 2004, in spite of the fact that he was legally
protected from dismissal. His dismissals was a result of the plan of
the management to get rid of workers who have been co-founders of
the plant and take over their shares. Uniontex S.P. was found in
2003 as a employee-owned firm, in order to save workplaces when
Uniontex S.A.- company of cotton industry- had been closed.
Because of the lack of control from the share-holders over the
employee-owned firm, the company has been overtaken by the
management of the board.

The Court has changed the procedure of the Kaczmarek's dismissal
from disciplinary one into normal. The compensation has been also
sentenced- an equivalent of the one salary. It means that officially we
have won the case, although the main demand of the Workers's
Initiative Trade Union was re-engaging Kaczmarek again. So we
reject the sentence and we are going to appeal it.

Slawomir Kaczmarek is one of fired workers supported by the
Committee for the Aid and Defence of Victimised Workers.
Krzysztof Labadz from KWK Budryk and Darek Skrzypczak from
Goplana Poznan have been already re-engaged. The sentence in the
case of Jacek Rosolowki, fired for a attempt to start a trade union in
the Impel-Tom company, is going to be given probably on the 10th
of October 2006.

The solidarity demonstration with Slawomir Kaczmarek and workers
of the temporary job agencies is going to take place on the 26th of
October in Lodz. The march is starting in front of the Uniontex
company on Tymienieckiego street. The Workers' Initiative Trade
Union is calling its members and supporters for the mass
