  • [01] Athens garbage strike over

    Sanitation crews were back on the streets of the greater Athens area as of early Friday evening following the end of a 11-day garbage strike ruled as "abusive" -- but not illegal -- by an Athens first instance court the previous day.

    An estimated 9,000 tonnes of rubbish has piled up over the week on Athens' rain-soaked street corners. A judge accepted Athens municipality's legal petition against the strike, citing public health and public good ahead of the upcoming Christmas holidays.

    Strikers demanded a normalisation of contract workers' status by the central government, a development that led to a heated clash between Athens Mayor Nikitas Kaklamanis -- who supports the demand -- and Interior Minister Yiannis Ragoussis, whose portfolio includes hirings in the wider public sector.
