  • [01] Discussion on draft labour bill begins at first Parliamentary Recess Committee

    The discussion, in principle, on the labour draft bill began at the first Parliamentary Recess Committee on Tuesday amid reaction from opposition parties and labour unions.

    The main argument voiced by deputies of the ruling New Democracy party was the need for "bold steps" to boost employment, adding that arrangements made in the year 2000, by the previous government, did not produce the results that had been expected.

    Employment Minister Panos Panayiotopoulos, participating in the discussion, accused the main opposition PASOK party of "disinformation and deliberate distortion of the content of arrangements included in the bill."

    ND rapporteur Athanassios Bouras said on his part that "the government is proceeding with bold, calculated and determined steps with reforms for a better tomorrow and not simply to preserve the achievements of yesterday."

    PASOK party leader George Papandreou is expected to address Parliament on current labour issues on Wednesday.
