  • [01] Nationside strike on Tuesday

    A nationwide 24-hour labor strike has been called for Tuesday by Greece's two major umbrella federations GSEE and ADEDY representing the private and public sectors, respectively.

    Greek media will also be taking part in the strike, which has been called in protest of the government's austerity measures and stinging changes in social security and labor relations.

    The ANA-MPA will also be taking part in the labor action, and as such no news will be disseminated from 6:00 a.m. Tuesday to 6:00 a.m. Wednesday, when transmission will be resumed.

    Protest demonstrations and marches are also planned throughout Tuesday in Athens, Thessaloniki and most cities throughout the country.

    [02] Protest at PPC

    Trade unionists of the Public Power Corporation (PPC) employees' federation (GENOP) late Sunday staged a take-over of the PPC headquarters on Halkokondyli street in downtown Athens and were still in place on Monday morning.

    The protestors have draped two large banners on the building facade, one with the slogan "We won't sell and are not for sale" while the second notes the prohibition of hiring at the PPC although the public utility's president N. Fotopoulos has said that the PPC spends more than 100 million euros annually for overtime.

    GENOP has also planned a protest march from the PPC headquarters to the Finance Ministry on Monday afternoon, and will also take part in a nationwide labor strike that has been called for Tuesday by the country's two largest umbrella federations GSEE and ADEDY representing private and public sector workers respectively.
