Bartosz Kantorczyk, a member of The Workers’ Initiative Trade Union in Gdansk in Poland and the initiator of postmen strike in November 2006, has been unlawfully dismissed. The unionists in the Polish post office had demanded improvement of job security in accordance with the law and had denounced violations of the workers’ rights by the management of the Polish Post. Management sacked Bartosz because he was such a high-profile union member, and therefore a threat to their ongoing exploitation of the workers.

The IWW is calling for a protest outside the Polish embassy to demonstrate against this blatant anti-union firing. This aggression towards Workers’ Initiative activists cannot be allowed to continue. Please forward this message, come to the demo and bring friends, workmates, banners and flags!
