Seven deadly sins of trade unions
While conducting collective disputes, trade unions often undertake actions that raise doubts about their legality. Sometimes these disputes are initiated by trade union centrals and are far from the actual situation at the workplace and the interests on the employees. This entails further misconduct. For example, raising demands that cannot be the subject of a collective dispute, organising illegal protests, or abusing the right to strike, as a direct result of fulfilling the expectations of representatives of regional or national trade union structures.- Slawomir Paruch, Robert Stępień, Michał Bodziony comment for Rzeczpospolita.
