Open letter of the Union’s President to Polish Business

Warsaw, 7th November 2020


Ladies and Gentlemen, Presidents of the Board, CEOs, Owners!

Our community is a highly diverse one. We are guided by different interests, views, and political sympathies.

In this case, however, we should present a unified front – to stop the pandemic from spreading and prevent a severe lockdown. According to what our policymakers are saying – a lockdown or re-opening the economy – both depend on the number of diagnosed cases and the efficiency of the healthcare system.

We do have a say in this though.

First of all, we can implement in our companies the highest sanitary standards. The current situation is not bad, but I urge you to personally evaluate what can be improved or done better. In person.

And secondly – from the position of your our authority or seniority, we must explain to our employees that it is neither us nor Prime Minister Morawiecki who pay them their salaries and wages, but satisfied customers. If as a result of a complete lockdown, there are no customers anymore, they may lose their jobs and livelihood. There will be no miracles; just like the government, we do not have any money of our own – only our customers’ money.

Experiences from all over the globe tell us that social discipline is key to curb the pandemic, discipline nowhere to be found in Poland. I am asking to you to actively persuade our fellow Poles – our employees – to comply with the restrictions of the DDM regime (Distance-Disinfection-Masks).

Join the cause! You have the necessary tools. You know best which to use.

Kindest regards,

Cezary Kaźmierczak
President of the Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers

The prolonged lockdown and further restrictions may lead to a real economic collapse. On the macro scale, Poland copes relatively well with the economic effects of the epidemic, but a number of industries – those currently subject to special rigors or a complete ban on operations – are in an extremely difficult situation. Maintaining the currently enforced restrictions after 17th January 2021 is associated with the risk of a wave of bankruptcies in the sectors covered by those restrictions and the spread of the crisis also to related sectors…

Appel of the Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers for a 12-month-long moratorium on new burdens

The year 2020 has been the most difficult period for Polish companies in many years. Within a few months there have been three giant blows to businesses: a tight lockdown in March-May, reduced demand in “social sectors” in June-August, finally a second wave of the epidemic that started in September, which resulted in the ongoing re-closure of a significant part of the economy…
