TUC joins with Polish Unions to support Polish workers in the UK
The TUC and the two Polish trade union confederations, Solidarnosc and OPZZ, have signed an agreement to work closely to help and support Polish workers in the UK.
The agreement commits parties to encouraging workers from both Poland and the Uk to joining a union of the country that they are working in and represents a continuation of links between the TUC, UK unions and unions in Poland that have been developed ovber the last 4 years. In 2005, a Polish organiser from Solidarnosc worked on a project in the TUCs North West region linking Polish workers to UK unions and also attended Organising Academy training.
