Poland -Polish workers win non-compliance case in UK -February 16, 2012

GMB, the union for engineering construction workers, successfully pursued a claim for UKP 251,204 (€ 297,700) in the Employment Tribunal in Cardiff for 14 Polish migrant workers who were employed as laggers by Darmar in the construction of the Uskmouth Power Station in South Wales. The compensation for the unlawful deductions amounts to almost UKP 18,000 (€ 21,330) per migrant worker and shows the extent of exploitation by contractors of migrant workers in the engineering construction sector. GMB officers had found that sums on pay slips bore no relation to the money going into the workers’ bank accounts. The tribunal backed the claims.
