Dialogue and investments in JSW - Przyjaźń Coking Plant

– Our Przyjaźń Coking Plant accounts for 75% of JSW Group’s total coke production. We know that without coking coal there is no steel, and we all use steel components in cars, household appliances, windmills, etc. on a daily basis. Today, here at the coking plant, we are monitoring the progress of the project together - said Barbara Piontek, President of the Management Board of Jastrzębska Spółka Węglowa (JSW) on 30 June at the Przyjaźń Coking Plant. This is the largest plant in JSW KOKS, which belongs to the JSW Group.

- I'm glad the CEO is open to people and investment projects. She is not afraid of challenges, she talks to all parties, engages in dialogue, and that’s the way things should be in such a large Group  - assessed Irena Przybysz, Chairwoman of the NSZZ Solidarność 80 trade union at JSW KOKS S.A., who participated in the business visit. - Today I was able to talk once again about the employees’ problems, the future of our jobs and investments, so that we can continue working here for a long time to come - said Irena Przybysz.
