– Union leaders have once made good money on JSW’s stock exchange debut and now they turn their backs on their mines, working to the detriment of the company they claim to defend – writes president of Employers of Poland Andrzej Malinowski.
– Last year, JSW spent 14.2 bln PLN on unions. How much of that was spent on activities motivated with concern for jobs? At most the sum after the coma, if anything, as 14 bln was spent on officials’ wages, which increased by 2.3 bln PLN in a year. In the interest of balance: an average wage of a JSW employer in 2014 was 8414 PN gross – stresses Malinowski.
According to the President of Employers of Poland, Jarosław Zagórowski look s after jobs at JSW with the same concern with which union leaders care for their high wages. He quickly reacts to changes and openly admits that unions cannot be an obstacle to restructuring, that they cannot oppose necessary changes dictated by market economy. – Thanks to a hard, honest and realistic stance he continues to employ people and pay their wages without resorting to taking money from taxpayers’ pockets – the favourite measure of the unions. I know him well and I assure you that he understands everything that a good manager concerned with the well-being of his company should know: that neither a company were law is not respected, nor a state were spoilt union leaders are indulged will do well – Malinowski opines.
– Which is why I would like to wish the JSW chairman a strong hand when union leaders are breaking the law. He should lay them off in the best interest of the very people they profess to represent – sums up the President of Employers of Poland.
