In August this year, NSZZ “Solidarność” celebrates its 40th anniversary. On this occasion, ceremonial celebrations of this jubilee were held throughout Poland.
It is a special holiday for Stalowa Wola – here, in the Stalowa Wola plants, numerous strikes and demonstrations took place. One of the largest strikes that took place in Huta Stalowa Wola in 1988 contributed to some extent to the political transformation that took place in our country.
The local „Solidarność” community, local authorities, representatives of the Church and invited guests took part in the Friday anniversary celebrations that took place in Stalowa Wola. Huta Stalowa Wola S.A. was represented by its President, General Director – Mr. Bartłomiej Zając.
The celebrations took place in several places located in the city to commemorate the strikes of HSW S.A. employees. The bouquets of flowers were placed at two commemorative Crosses. One of them is at the “Gate No. 3”, which was the entrance to the then closed areas of Huta Stalowa Wola. New commemorative plaques were also unveiled there. The Second Cross stands next to the Tool Shop building – this is where the first “Solidarity” in the region was established. This was the heart of the 1988 year strike.
