  1. Top brass told to declare incomes

    China: Beijing is ordering ranking military officers to declare their personal incomes and property such as real estate in an ongoing attempt to rein in rampant corruption.

    State media reports Friday said that all investments must be disclosed in a standard declaration required of all leading officers.

    Army officers enjoy numerous perks such as license plates that exempt them from fines and tolls.


  2. Polish miners mount 24-hour strike

    Polish miners held a 24-hour strike October 19. The strike, which began at Jastrzebska Spolka Weglowa SA (JSW SA), is due to a disagreement with the management board regarding the introduction of new labour contracts for newly hired employees and wages.

    Management intends to impose contracts violating the national labour law as well as the previous agreement with unions, including an agreement signed in May concerning the privatisation of JSW SA.

    According to IndustriALL Global Union, “The union demands withdrawal of unfavourable contracts for new employees and an increase of salaries by 3.8 percent. The company declared 50 percent of workers participated in the strike and announced Z17 million (€4.1 million) losses in revenues as a direct result of the strike. The union dismisses the data as unreliable….”

    The JSW Group is the largest producer of high-quality coking coal and an important coke producer in the European Union. By the end of 2011, the group employed almost 30,000 workers.
