(en) Poland, Thousands of Volkswagen employees are demanding restitution for work released for union activity by INICJATYWA PRACOWNICZA - WORKERS' INITIATIVE [machine translation]

The certificate indicates that the company is concerned about the stability of employment, compliance with health and safety regulations and the right to trade unions. The current management activities, however, deny this. In Poland, dismissing employees for union activities is not uncommon. VW confirms this, and worse yet, being one of the largest employers in the region has the effect of undermining employment standards in other compan
