– The reform of Polish mining which according to government plans should also involve the energy industry is not an issue exclusive to the government and unions – President of Employers of Poland Andrzej Malinowski points out.
How should the agreement on mine restructuring be assessed? – Undoubtedly, the fact that the agreement was reached, preventing the escalation of a conflict which could potentially destabilize the whole economy, should be considered a success of Ms Kopacz – the President admits.
However, he finds it hard to resists the impression that the agreement achieved much less than the initial decisive government declarations suggested. – Sadly, the agreement does not solve the problems of Polish mining, an industry in need of courageous measures favourable for the whole sector – he assesses.
– When commenting on the agreement one should clearly stress that there can be no true, constructive dialog beneficial for the economy without taking Employers’ views into account – adds President Malinowski.
