Solidarity seeks to rescue economy, ties to regime
Gdansk, Poland — Leaders of the Solidarity free trade union met Monday to consider ways to improve the country's economic situation and the union's battered relations with the Communist government. A government delegation attended the meeting in response to a Solidarity invitation made during talks last week with Deputy Premier Mieczyslaw Rakowski, which ended in acrimonious exchanges and plunged relations between the government and the union to a new low.
The government attendance was seen as an indication it was interested in resuming dialogue.
In Gdansk, a Solidarity spokesman said the government had accepted a proposal by union leader Leach Walesa for a tele vised debate with Mr. Rakowski.
