Poland's Solidarity union to table Sunday shopping ban

Poland's Solidarity trade union wants a ban on Sunday trading to apply to foreign-owned hypermarkets as well as other non-Polish playersPoland’s Solidarity trade union will table a citizens’ initiative bill to ban Sunday trading in the staunchly Catholic EU country, threatening employers who flout the law with prison terms of two years, the union said Thursday. “We’ve collected 350,000 signatures under our citizens’ bill for a Sunday shopping ban and we’ll table it in parliament on Friday,” Solidarity official Alfred Bujara told AFP. The law would seek to jail non-compliant employers for up to two years as its backers believe fines may not be enough to deter some store owners who Solidarity say could choose to pay penalties in order to keep their doors open.
