The Polish electricity distributor ZE PAK (Zespół Elektrowni Pątnów-Adamów-Konin) has announced that it will implement a collective dismissal programme affecting up to 237 employees at two company’s subsidiaries (up to 111 jobs in PAK KWB Adamów and up to 126 in PAK Górnictwo). The programme will be carried out between 1 July and 31 October 2020. The conditions of the programme will be negotiated with the local trade unions.
