They want to bind the Polish workers openly to an organization like the AFL-CIO, that would play the role of "loyal opposition" (that is, selling out the workers on economic issues), while leaving the government free to rule on behalf of the capitalists.
Polish agriculture, too, is showing the effects of the move to open capitalism.

 Modern History Sourcebook: COMINFORM COMMUNIQUÉ: Resolution of the Information Bureau Concerning the Communist Party of Yugoslavia, June 28, 1948
The Information Bureau considers that, in view of all this, the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Yugoslavia has placed itself and the Yugoslav Party outside the family of the fraternal Communist Parties, outside the united Communist front and consequently outside the ranks of the Information Bureau.
In home policy, the leaders of the Communist Party of Yugoslavia are departing from the positions of the working class and are breaking with the Marxist theory of classes and class struggle.
Should the present leaders of the Yugoslav Communist Party prove incapable of doing this, their job is to replace them and to advance a new internationalist leadership of the Party.

 Poland: Behind the Crisis (1982) : Introduction
From his analysis it is clear that the Polish United Workers Party leadership could have called upon the strikers to fight the Western banks as well as to check the capitalist tendencies in the countryside.
The U.S. ruling class and its sycophants have hailed the Polish protests and wildly acclaimed the workers' strikes (the Polish workers' strikes, that is, not the strikes of U.S. workers!).
The Pope and the Polish Cardinal are their political guiding stars, the bitterly anti-Soviet and vulgarly anti-Leninist Solzhenitsyn is their ideologist while the Rockefellers, the Mellons, the Morgans, the Krupps, the Flicks and the other imperialist bankers are their off-stage puppet-masters.

 H-Net Review: Deborah J. Cahalen on Rebuilding Poland: Workers and Communists 1945-1950
Kenney sketches the conflict between the two political parties, the PPR and PPS (Polish Workers' Party and Polish Socialist Party), which later merged to form the PZPR, or Polish United Workers' Party, the Communist Party in Poland.
The city was rebuilt as Polish, but due to the lack of community solidarity among workers there was markedly less resistance to communist policies, particularly in the form of strikes.
Kenney shows how workers incorporated the new rhetoric of the communist state into their protests, however, subverting the ideological appeals of the state and forcing officials to take action to alleviate conditions.

In November of 1988, Professor Dilejko of the Academy of Social Sciences at the Central Committee of the Polish United Workers' Party polled secretaries of district committees.
We were also prisoners of the leading role of the party dogma, the unquestioned role of the leader dogma, and finally the dogma of an absolute superiority of the socialist economy over the capitalist one.
As far as the attitude among most workers in those days is concerned, I'd say there were two aspects to it: general distaste for everything defined as "the commies," I'm talking about the people I used to meet, and hope for rapid improvement in the economic situation.
