Labor Groups in Poland Formulate New Policy, Including Jewish Party

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Better relations between Polish and Jewish labor forces were predicted today when it was announced that a union of labor organizations, including the Jewish labor group, is in the process of formation.

The Polish Socialist Party which is the leading political labor group in the country has determined, with its decision to proceed to the opposition to the Pilsudski government, to create a united labor front. This alliance is to include the Jewish labor party, Bund; the German Social Democrats in Posen, the labor unions and class organizations. A conference of all these groups was called and will be held shortly to formulate a joint policy.

This action constitutes a new departure in Poland internal politics, in view of the fact that the Polish Socialist Party has previously held aloof from the national minorities labor groups and particularly from the Jewish labor group, being under pressure of the anti-Semitic tendency prevalent in the country and which was used as a weapon by the anti-Semitic parties in their fight against the P.P.S.
