Employers are very critical in their assessment of the amendment which gives those with civil contacts the right to join trade unions and to strike.
In their common position, employers acknowledge the need to implement the ruling of the Constitutional Tribunal from June 2nd 2015 and to grant the right to form and join trade unions to people employed on civil contracts.
– The problem is that the draft of the amendment includes solutions which we see as unacceptable – explains Monika Gładoch, attorney at law and expert of Employers of Poland. – It involves the removal of the notion of “employer” and the introduction of the “employing entity” in its place. This is not only a violation of art. 53 of the constitution, but also of the fundamental principles of law. Passing this amendment would be a true revolution and a dismantling of Labour Law – she stresses.
