  • [01] PASOK: Govt's reforms damage workers

    The government's reforms damage workers' rights whether in terms of pay or labour relations, main opposition PASOK Spokesman Nikos Athanassakis said commenting on the goverment's draft bill on reforming public sector enterprises on Tuesday.

    Athanassakis accused the government of implementing policies that "continuously lead to an impasse and that public sector enterprises are on a steady decline making losses when they used to be profitable."

    Further, PASOK's spokesman said that the government tries to lay the blame for everything on workers and on public sector enterprises' social role, while trying to unilaterally change working terms and conditions.

    The government's "decisions and moves thus lead to insecurity among workers and uncertainty in the marketplace," he said.

    The draft bill, which was unanimously approved by the inner cabinet on Tuesday, provides for the introduction of private-sector management principles and international accounting standards for public enterprises and organisations; and the shift of bourse-listed state utilities into the private sector, among other things.
