This is the 2002 – 2009 chronology of events Inicjatywa Pracownicza has been involved in :
Early in 2002, IP engages in protest against the proposal of changing labour regulations to favour flexible forms of employment. Later that year Poznan activists take active part in the protests of workers at Hipolit Cegielski Poznan SA (HCP) metalworks, who demanded massive job reductions to cease. In June, trade unions at HCP (Solidarnosc and Solidarnosc'80) together with IP march through the streets of Poznan. The demonstration gathers nearly thousand participants, including a hundred from IP.
