Union and Church help Poles

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH in Scotland is planning to join forces with a trade union to defend the rights of exploited Polish workers.

The union T&G Scotland has organised a meeting with Polish representatives — to be conducted in Polish — on October 9 to discuss the difficulties that migrants face.

According to T&G Scotland Polish migrants have been mistreated by landlords and forced to work long hours with no sick leave or holiday pay.

Archbishop Mario Conti of Glasgow said: "I am delighted to work with the union to offer support and solidarity to the newly arrived Poles and their families. Their contribution, economically, culturally and spiritually to Scotland will be greatly enriching, and we must do all we can to ensure they arc not ill-treated or exploited."

T&G Scotland wants Polish workers to join the union.
