Abstract

The trade union movement is well aware that migration in its many forms is not new. However, the extent and scope of the recent accession of the A81 countries and in particular the Poles has caught many by surprise. Given this, information has often been at the forefront of these new migrants’ needs and this report, commissioned by the Yorkshire and the Humber regional TUC, details the informational needs of Polish migrant workers and highlights what is currently available. What has been found is that there are currently a growing number of sources of information for new migrants and in particular the Poles, too many in fact to detail. Instead examples have been given, and more importantly the methods of providing this information are discussed. In particular, those which have involved trade union engagement with Polish workers are highlighted.
