(en) Poland, Workers Initiative: Trade unions at the Poznan University of Art against the release of prof. Jaroslaw Kozlowski [machine translation]

Date Wed, 10 Jul 2019 09:08:47 +0300

Two trade unions operating at the Poznan University of the Arts - NSZZ "Solidarnosc" and the Employee Initiative (Inter-Enterprise Commission at the Theater of the Eighth Day) issued a joint stand against the dismissal of prof. Jaroslaw Kozlowski. Below we publish the content of the position. ---- Common position of the NSZZ "Solidarity" enterprise organization at the University of Arts in Poznan and the Interprovice Commission of the OZZ Employee Initiative at the Eighth Day Theater in Poznan ---- We strongly protest against the termination of the employment contract by the Rector of the University of Arts in Poznan prof. dr hab. Wojciech Hora, a prominent, world-class artist, a great academic teacher, an educator of a large group of successful artistic artists around the world, prof. dr hab. Jaroslaw Kozlowski.

We protest against ignoring the opinion and position of the academic community, the artistic community and the trade union organizations operating at UAP, which explicitly commented against the termination of the employment contract of prof. dr hab. Jaroslaw Kozlowski.

We would like to remind you that in June last year, after almost two years trial, based on a final judgment of the Labor Court, prof. dr hab. Jaroslaw Kozlowski was restored to work at the university and depriving him of the function of the head of the drawing studio and dismissing the employment contract was considered unlawful and unfounded.

Currently, the current Rector of the University of Arts, prof. dr hab. Wojciech Hora began his term of office by firing professors who were most distinguished for the University. The project started in September 2016 and still continuing the "proprietary" idea of the current Rector for the restructuring of the Poznan University also included many key, dedicated staff at the university, administration and service staff. As a result of the implementation of this "strategy", several dozen employees of UAP lost their jobs.
University scholars and administration and service staff who were dismissed from university were in many cases connected with UAP for several decades and their work and involvement in the affairs of the university, as well as artistic activity and pedagogical successes of prof. Jaroslaw Kozlowski aroused widespread recognition and contributed to the development of this institution and the consolidation of its position among the best European art colleges.

The resignation of the employment contract of professor Jaroslaw Kozlowski can not be justified with rational arguments. Such a Rector's decision fits perfectly into the sequence of activities of the current UAP authorities, which by successive decisions consciously transform a recognized and valued university into an authoritatively managed "corporate" institution, which is less and less reminiscent of an outstanding art school.

It is in this institution that the current Vice-Rector for student affairs wanted students to protest against the unlawful release of their favorite Professor pacify with the participation of the police.

Unfortunately, this fact was only a prelude to the later activities of the current university authorities, which know the freedom of expression, tolerance for different views and attitudes, and the democratic model of university governance only from their own pre-election declarations.

At present, everyday life at the University of Arts in Poznan looks different. And the case of Professor Jaroslaw Kozlowski is an eloquent proof of such a situation that is particularly bizarre for an art school.

The "NSZZ" Solidarity Trade Union Organization and the OZZ Inter-enterprise Committee. The Workers' Initiative at the Eighth Day Theater jointly demand the immediate withdrawal of the Rector of UAP from the action taken against Prof. dr hab. Jaroslaw Kozlowski's decision and immediate restoration of one of the most meritorious people for our university, its former Rector, to work at the University of Arts in Poznan.

We are appealing to the newly elected Council of the University of the University of Arts in Poznan and the UAP Senate to take over and make public the position of the University Council and Senate in this matter.
