Abstract:
On 1 May 2004 ten new states joined the European Union. Citizens of these states were permitted to work without visas in the UK, resulting in a large increase in the numbers of migrant workers. This study, based on a mail survey of 508 Polish
and Lithuanians who requested a TUC leaflet on their rights, explores the kinds of difficulties faced by this group of migrants, and the challenges and opportunities for organising them.
