  • [01] 48h Pharmacy strike

    Pharmacies will be closed throughout Greece on Monday and Tuesday in protest to the government's planned changes to their operational institutional framework.

    The Panhellenic Pharmacy Association, which staged a 24-hour strike on Friday, has decided a new 48-hour strike for Monday and Tuesday, demanding that "safety valves" be found to avert the penetratin of private interests in the field of pharmaceutical care.

    If the government commits itself to the above, the pharmacists agree to dialogue and call on the government to submit a clear policy on medicine and pharmacies, including a specific time-table, the Association said in a statement, warning that pharmacists will continue their labor action with 48-hour rolling strikes, if necessary.
