Dispute with shipyard threatens Walesa's job

In Gdansk, Walesa's employers delayed any decision on what disciplinary action to bring against him for allegedly disregarding orders to put off his vacation until August. Shipyard sources said legal documents ordering Walesa's dismissal were being prepared.
