  • [01] PPC workers continue strike

  • [01] PPC workers continue strike

    Power cuts throughout the country continued on Friday as state-run Public Power Corp. (PPC) employees refused to call off strike actions while managing to maneuver out of a court hearing on the management's case to have their strike declared illegal and excessive.

    Their national PPC union, GENOP-DEH, called off the six rolling strikes that were due to begin on Friday so that there would be no court hearing. In the meantime, however, local employee associations that comprise GENOP-DEH's membership around the country voted to stay on strike.

    PPC management has issued an announcement expressing hope that the unions will at least provide skeleton crews needed to keep power plants running if the strike continued into next week.

    It also strenuously denied speculation that PPC CEO Takis Athanassopoulos was about to hand in his resignation, or a trade unionist's claim that power cuts were unnecessary and a deliberate ruse to undermine public support for the strike.
