    (AMNA) -- The executive committee of the union representing local government workers decided on Friday evening to end a garbage strike that has affected refuse collection throughout the country. Rubbish collectors accompanied by trucks reportedly started picking up the mounds of garbage swamping bins on Friday evening, at least in the greater Athens area.

    The union had initially referred to a "symbolic takeover" of the one and only (AMNA) legal landfill for the greater Athens area as the reason for the garbage pileup in the Greek capital, although it was forced to declare an official strike thereafter. Other major cities, including Thessaloniki in the north, witnessed tons of rubbish pile up on sidewalks and overflow onto streets.

    Labour leaders were protesting a law envisioning layoffs in the wider public sector and possible pay cuts from a unified pay scale. AMNA
