Poland: WZZ "August 80" organized spontaneous actions on three mines of the Polish mining group

In this way the association wants to mobilize even more miners for the strike and the demonstration. We also call for a mass participation in a strike referendum on 25 February. We have to count on ourselves - by participating - and show our strength, because those in power are watching closely," August 80 wrote on his Facebook profile. The trade unionists inform the miners in the mines "Murcki-Staszic", "Mysłowice-Wesoła" and "Wujek" about the necessity of an upcoming two-hour warning strike.

They also remind them to participate in a strike referendum and encourage them to register for a demonstration in Warsaw. National Commission of WZZ "August 80". Today, spontaneous actions are carried out on several mines (e.g.: "Murcki-Staszic", "Mysłowice-Wesoła", "Wujek"). We talk about the situation, about the course of recent talks with the government and the PGG management. We inform about the necessity of joint participation in the 2-hour warning strike on Monday (morning shift). We also call for mass participation in a strike referendum on 25 February. We have to count on ourselves - participate in it - and show our strength, because those in power are watching closely. We are still registering a demonstration in Warsaw (28.02). You can register for the demonstration in any trade union organisation at any PGG mine. We as WZZ "August 80" have many registrations. But it is a common struggle across trade unions. Urge other unions to take it seriously. We already have people who have signed up for a few buses at every mine. And the others? They're asking if you're not in a union or if you can leave. You can, you must. It's our common struggle. Every PGG miner in Warsaw has the opportunity to sign up for a demonstration in any union in his mine. The struggle goes on.
