For more than two years the management of the Statistical Office in Opole, Poland, has violated a number of workers' rights and harassed their employees because of their affiliation with Workers' Initiative.
In addition, an investigation by the government labor inspection agency revealed that there are more irregularities in the company. More illegal practices (according to the Labor Code) came to light each time they checked. For instance, disabled people were forced to work overtime.
The activists of Workers' Initiative are still being persecuted. Officially, that is due to necessary cuts of staff, but the real reason is repression against worker activists.
Workers' Initiative asks to send solidarity letters directly to the executives of the Statistical Office in Opole:
Statistical Office in Opole
Please, also send letters to the state institution responsible for the management of the Statistical Office:
Departament Kontroli Kancelarii Prezesa Rady Ministrów
(Control Department in the Office of the Prime Minister)
