A statutory model of trade unions at the employer level in Poland

Maciej Łaga


The paper describes a statutory model of trade unions at the employer level in Poland. Freedom of associacion guaranteed in ILO Convention No. 87 includes freedom to establish union structures. However, the Polish legislator enforces Polish trade unions to establish so-called ’works union organizations’ at the employer level. Trade unions which does not establish a ’works union organization’, exercise practically no rights of workers’ represenation at the employer level. In effect Polish law is a significant obstacle to development of trade unions in contemporary Poland.
