  • [01] Athens mayor on garbage strike

    (ANA-MPA) -- The growing mounds of rubbish on the city of Athens' street corners generated a heated response by Athens Mayor Nikitas Kaklamanis on Wednesday, hours after Interior Minister Yiannis Ragoussis called on the municipality's administration to take "necessary" legal action in order to resume garbage collection.

    "The city of Athens introduced the legal procedures yesterday (Tuesday), therefore, he (Ragoussis) rather belatedly thought to intervene in order to settle a situation for which he is solely responsible, due to his unwillingness to satisfy a basic demand made by strikers, namely, the allocation of additional points (to contract workers with experience who apply) for a position with the relevant organisation".

    Kaklamanis also said that strikers‚ demand has the unanimous support of the Central Union of Municipalities and Communities of Greece, of which he is president, and "all political forces in Parliament, except for the government."
