Roche (RHHBY) Workers in Poland Protest Hiring Practices



1/23/2012 8:26:28 AM

Perhaps emboldened by the success that Novartis employees in Switzerland had in protesting job cuts, Roche workers in Poland last week organized protests over hiring practices. The workers argue that the drugmaker hires people on a long-running contract basis, but does not offer regular employment and related benefits, including job protection, according to web sites run by workers’ rights groups.

The worker groups argue that his willingness to publicly voice his displeasure led to his dismissal and they want the drugmaker to reinstate him.
