Who are we?

Solidaritet is a trade union established by Poles for Poles working in Norway.

From 28.01.2014 we have been constantly acting in the interest of our members. For over 2 years we have been effective in bringing assistance to members who require professional support. The initiators of the trade union were prompted to set up a trade union Solidaritet as a result of the problems they experienced in Norwegian workplaces. Solidaritet was established on the initiative of President Artur Kubik and his deputy Wojciech Rysia, who, inspired by the achievements of the NSZZ "Solidarność" trade union, as well as the knowledge and experience of the Norwegian market, started to provide support to the affected workers.

Nowadays, not only Polish citizens can sign up to Solidaritet, but also anyone who feels uncomfortable at work as a result of the unregulated actions of Norwegian employers. In addition to the immediate assistance of individual members of the Solidaritet association, we won more than 30 court cases.

For many years we have been effective on behalf of members of our organization in improving their working conditions.
