OPZZ and Razem to Cooperate on Workers' Rights
The All-Poland Alliance of Trade Unions (OPZZ) and left wing party Together (Razem) have agreed a series of actions in defence of workers' rights.
These will include organising demonstrations and pickets and organising regional meetings on employment rights and social security. The first joint actions are expected to be around the issue of the minimum wage, with both organisations planning to remind the governing party PiS of their committments on this issue.
The two organisations have also discussed such things as joint work on the council of social dialogue and trade unionising people working on temporary contracts.
