The World

February 02, 1988

Government-ordered price increases went into effect in Poland amid indications of dissatisfaction among workers, but there were no reported strikes or demonstrations. Janusz Onyszkiewicz, spokesman for the banned Solidarity union, said he was summoned to the prosecutor's office for a "warning talk" in Warsaw. He said that Zbigniew Bujak, Solidarity leader in Warsaw, also was called in and warned that the union will face "legal consequences" if it advocates opposition to the price boosts. The day before, at least 3,000 Solidarity supporters in Gdansk had protested the increases, which average 40% on basic foods.
