Adam Bodnar, the Polish ombudsman began the check of the Lindab enterprise near Warsaw due to the scandal with the issuance of the uniform of the different color to the Ukrainian workers as Wyporcza.pl reported.
According to Leslav Novatski, the Head of the Group for Labor Rights and Social Protection in the ombudsman’s office, Bodnar will appeal to the labor inspection to hold the check of the enterprise.
‘These differences can carry the traits of the illegal practice of the discrimination nature’, he commented the fact that the Ukrainians are forced to wear the special uniform.
The office of the ombudsman will make the decision on the further actions after the inspection.
As we reported the citizens of Ukraine were issued the uniform of the different color than the uniform of the Poles at the Lindab Company near Warsaw, Poland. The local entrepreneur explained that the color of the uniform demonstrated the level of the acknowledgment of the Polish language by the worker but the anti-racist union Nigdy wiecej (Nevermore) claimed about the violations.
All workers wear blue pants and T-shirts of different colors depending from the position. A crew chief wears a red T-shirt, a mechanic wear a green T-shirt. The Ukrainians are issued the yellow or orange T-shirts. The yellow clothes belong to people who do not know the Polish language and the orange clothes are for the people who know the Polish or English.
