Strikes Throughout Poland
Polish workers, led by Lech Walesa, struck the Gdansk shipyards. The workers won a major victory, when the government agreed to demands made by newly formed Solidarity Trade Union to both legalize unions, as well as affirm the right to strike. The victory of Solidarity was the first step in the eventual dissolution of the Soviet Union.
