(en) Poland, zsp: Firma Ksiegarska Jaroslaw Granos has paid part of the outstanding salary [machine translation]

Date Mon, 18 Jan 2021 09:56:58 +0200


On Wednesday, December 9, 2020, the Union of Syndicalists of Poland - the Union of Multiples in Warsaw organized a picket in front of the bookstore belonging to the Jaroslaw Granos Bookshop (66 Targowa Street). We demanded payment of outstanding remuneration and receivables for the period of notice for the unjustly dismissed employee. On the same day, after the picket, we received information from the injured party that part of the due money had been paid. ---- We have already written about the scandalous employment practices at Firma Ksiegarska Jaroslaw Granos . ---- The Bookkeeping Company Jaroslaw Granos runs at least 3 outlets for cheap books in Praga. The company also sells books online and has magazines in Stara Milosna. This is where Ewa worked, a student who cannot ask for payment of all the remuneration due to her.

The owner of the business took advantage of a girl who was working to earn the rent. The catalog of illegal activities is quite typical: first the owner delayed presenting a written contract, which in itself is already breaking the law. When she finally received the contract, the number of hours was less than actually planned. It was supposed to be "on paper only". Unfortunately, many people fall for such tricks of dishonest employers. During the work, there was no record of working time. The female worker ended up not getting most of her salary for the hours she worked.

There was a toxic atmosphere in the workplace, the employer commented on the private life of employees in an indiscriminate or even vulgar way, bluntly implied that he believed that in terms of cooperation regulations he was above the law, and compliance with it depends on his good will, because ultimately no one will do nothing to him. He articulated incomprehensible claims, from which it was impossible to guess whether he had any specific objections to the work he performed, or whether he was simply in a bad mood and wanted to take advantage of the employees, eventually he went so far as to make comprehensive assessments about Ewa, he told her that she was sucked, that she would achieve nothing and claimed that "by giving her a job" was doing her a great service.

The dismissal took place overnight, when the employee reported the need for a sick leave. This angered her boss, who told her to choose whether she wanted to work or take a sick leave, because - as he put it - "you have to fuck in here".

We know that Ewa is not the only employee aggrieved by this dishonest employer who turned the failure to pay part or all of the last salary into a practice. Another employee lost her job overnight shortly before Ewa was fired. Our information shows that she received a small part of her salary for the last month, and also did not receive the money she was entitled to due to the failure to observe the notice period.

On Wednesday, December 9, 2020, the Union of Syndicalists of Poland - the Union of Multiples in Warsaw organized a picket at the bookstore on Targowa Street, on that day the owner transferred the overdue payment to Ewa, but "forgot" about the severance pay.

The Union of Syndicalists of Poland intends to further protest against the employer's unfair practices. We call on the owner of the Bookkeeping Company, Jaroslaw Granos, to pay the sum due to the employee. We encourage our neighbors in Praga to avoid using the services of such companies and instead make purchases where workers' rights are duly respected.
