Poland: LOT sacks union leader

In partnership with the International Transport Workers Federation (ITF) and the European Transport Workers Federation (ETF).

On 25 July 2014, the President of LOT Polish Airlines has dismissed the vice-president of the ITF and ETF affiliated cabin crew union ZZPP, Andrzej Jeżewski. This dismissal is not only as a violation of trade union rights, but also an attempt to disrupt on-going collective agreement negotiations. The state owned airline has a bad record of similar anti-union practices. Over the last five years, the airline dismissed eight trade union leaders.On 4 August 2014, the Civil Aviation Secretaries of the ITF and ETF sent a joint letter to the President of LOT Polish Airlines, demanding the reinstatement of the dismissed union leader. The airline management preferred to keep silent about the issue and avoided the phone calls from the ETF office. Now the situation is escalating into a dispute.
Please write to the president of Poland, Bronislaw Komorowski, to remind him about the responsibility of the Polish State as the owner of the company to ensure fair and good faith industrial relations and demand the reinstatement of Andrzej Jeżewski.
