My solidarity to the workers who tried to get something but I don't see the victory. Just after some more radical unions were created in Tesco and were calling for strike actions to get like 700 zl. raise, the larger and more compromising Solidarity agrees for much smaller raises instead of joining the other unions in a strike. It's not defeat but a small victory for Tesco when for the first time there is really a serious threat that stores in the whole country will go on strike, some union makes a deal (which BTW doesn't apply to all Tesco).
