  • [01] ND on labour relations

  • [01] ND on labour relations

    Main opposition New Democracy (ND) party spokesman Panos Panagiotopoulos said on Tuesday referring to the Presidential Decree on labour relations that the "hide-and-seek game played by the government and the publicity stunts it engages in should end."

    Panagiotopoulos underlined that the government was forced to abandon the Presidential Decree procedure under pressure from the opposition and public opinion and stressed that "legislation of that kind has to be passed in parliament".

    He stressed that greater flexibility in labour relations is regarded as "useful by the ND under the precondition that the workers' rights will be safeguarded combined with a policy that will support development and boost economic activity."

    "ND will wait for Labour Minister Andreas Loverdos' formal briefing and calls on the government to clarify its positions," Panagiotopoulos said.

    He added that ND is in favor of the social insurance system's reform and the adoption of structural changes stressing, however, that the viability of the social insurance system must be guaranteed.
