  • [01] ADEDY to strike in support of teachers

  • [01] ADEDY to strike in support of teachers

    The civil servants' union, ADEDY, on Friday announced that it will call another 24-hour strike for Wednesday, Oct. 18, in support of an ongoing strike by teachers', which looks set to enter its fifth straight week.

    The announcement comes after local unions representing junior and high school teachers across the country also called a three-day strike for next week -- Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Monday and possibly next Friday are a school holidays due to the municipal elections, the first round of which begins this weekend, given that most schools serve as voting precincts.

    The teachers' union is demanding a pay hike of more than 40 percent for new hirings and low-wage earning educators, more money for the education sector out of the state budget as well as "keeping the education sector" in the public domain, i.e. not allowing the establishment of private, non-profit universities in the country.

    ADEDY is one of two major labour groupings in the east Mediterranean country due to the significant number of civil servants employed in Greece.
