Bujara: The parliamentary majority acts in the interest of multinational companies

– We will defend trade-free Sundays. This is a fight for the dignity of workers – explains Alfred Bujara, chairman of the industry “Solidarity” in an interview with DoRzeczy.pl.

The Parliamentary Economic Committee has adopted the Poland 2050 proposal to partially lift the ban on Sunday trading in December. The project assumes that shops will be open on Sundays, December 10 and 17, but a trading ban will apply on Christmas Eve – which also falls on a Sunday this year.

According to current regulations, commercial Sundays fell on December 17 and 24 this year, as there should be two consecutive commercial Sundays before Christmas. The project of the government of Mateusz Morawiecki aimed to exceptionally abolish the trading ban on Sunday, December 10, so that shops would be closed on Christmas Eve. However, the Parliamentary Economic Committee has adopted the Poland 2050 proposal, according to which Poles will be able to shop on the Sundays of December 10 and 17 without a specific time limit.

We asked Alfred Bujara, chairman of the Solidarity branch, for comment on this issue. –It is actually a nod and an act in the interest of international companies. We asked for a day off. It turned out that the government of Mateusz Morawiecki proposed working until 2 p.m. Marshal Hołownia proposed to change this day into two Sundays. This is what major international companies, who are against restricting Sunday trading, wanted. And so it happened. This is a disturbing activity. Especially since Marshal Szymon Hołownia announced that there would be a discussion about restricting trading on Sundays. So we can expect changes, says Bujara in an interview with DoRzeczy.pl.

We also asked Alfred Bujara whether ‘Solidarity’ is not afraid that the new parliamentary majority wants to abolish the ban on Sunday trading. – We will defend trade-free Sundays. This is a fight for the dignity of trade workers. We will do everything we can to keep these Sundays. We’ll see how successful this is. All this shows that the current parliamentary majority works in the interests of business, he noted.
