Solidarity with sacked Gdansk port worker

Submitted by Matthew on 9 September, 2015 - 10:25

Maciek Konopka, a dock worker in Gdansk, Poland, has been sacked for union organising, sparking an international campaign for his reinstatement.

Maciek’s sacking is the latest union-busting action by dock management, including intimidation and threats of dismissal as workers organise for better pay, against the use of temporary contracts, and over negotiation of a collective bargaining agreement.

Management employs workers on rolling temporary employment contracts, seemingly to maximise a culture of fear and job insecurity.

LabourStart are working with international unions to run a campaign for Maciek’s reinstatement and against union-busting.
