A POLISH Federation of
Christian Trade Unions which will co-operate with the
International Federation of Christian Trade Unions in Utrecht, Holland, is to be formed following a conference held recently in Paris.
Delegates at the conference represented in the main the Polish sections of such powerful organisations as the Confederation Generale des Travailleurs Chretiens in France. In the chair was Mr. H. Hanke, leader of the Polish Christian Trade Unionists in London.
In its first declaration the Federation branded Communism and pledges itself to follow the Papal encyclicals.
An international federation of exiled workers has also been created. Delegates representing 13 nations behind the " iron curtain " took part in the discussions, which followed those of the trade unionists.
