Polish workers fail to rally to call for job slowdown

A workers' job slowdown, called by a secret committee at the Lenin Shipyard here, appeared to have drawn little response. Three years ago, it was the birthplace of Poland's banned Solidarity trade union.

The protest was called to bring pressure on the Communist authorities to begin talks with Solidarity leader Lech Walesa. Earlier, the former union chairman had called off a planned rally at Solidarity's three-crosses monument outside the shipyard's main gate after work Monday to avoid the possibility of a clash with police and the risk of arrests.
