(en) Poland, ZSP* Picket and H&M in Warsaw

Date Sun, 20 Jun 2010 13:33:32 +0300

18 June ZSP held a picket at an H&M shop in the center of Warsaw. The protest was related to two cases of violating workers' rights - from Bangladesh and from Spain. - We remember the horrible tragedy at the Garib garment factory in Bangladesh, On February 25, 22 workers were killed in a fire. The people were locked in the factory and could not escape; on top of that, there were numerous safety violations. The National Garment Workers Federation is calling for compensation for the families of the victims and better safety standards at the factory. More information on this case, plus an online petition :
http://www.cleanclothes.org/urgent-actions/garib-fire-survivors-call-for-justice-and-a-safe-industry is here. ---- The second case had to do with a comrade from a Madrid shop who was forced to sign his own resignation against his will. The CNT is demanding he be reinstated to his job and will not tolerate such intimidation of workers. Several pickets have been held in different cities in Spain and the CNT called for international actions. On the same day as the Warsaw picket, there was also one in Alicante.

The customers of H&M and people on the street were given leaflets about the case. A copy of the text (in Polish) is on our main page: www.zsp.net.pl

As we understand, H&M in Madrid is giving in a bit to the pressure and is negotiating with the CNT.
