Up to 200,000 trade unionists marched in Warsaw last Saturday against the government’s austerity polices.
It was the first time the three major union federations—Solidarity, OPZZ and FZZ—had held such a huge joint protest.
The main issues are the rise in retirement age to 67 and new flexible working which means being at bosses’ beck and call.
It was also a general protest against the government’s arrogance, neoliberalism, privatisation, cuts and sackings.
Now many workers are calling for a general strike.
