  • [01] EU Commission awards 25 mln euros in emergency funding to the European Asylum Support Office for capacity building in Greece

    The European Commission has awarded 25 million euros in emergency funding to the European Asylum Support Office (EASO) to enhance its capacity to further support the Greek authorities.

    These additional resources will be used to support the implementation of the EU-Turkey Statement and the EU emergency relocation scheme.

    The funding is provided under the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF) and will allow for the deployment of additional Member State experts and interpreters, and the set-up of mobile EASO offices in the hotspots to assist with processing asylum applications.

    EU Commissioner Avramopoulos said: "EU Agencies are playing a crucial role in supporting the Greek authorities on the ground, providing practical expertise and operational support. The Commission is supporting these deployments through emergency EU funding. I call on Member States to quickly make available the necessary staff to help EASO deliver the planned support and give a boost to the EU relocation scheme. This is key to addressing the humanitarian situation on the ground."

    [02] Piraeus and Thessaloniki port employees to hold 48-hour strikes as of Thursday

    The 48-hour repeated strikes of the Piraeus Port Organisation (OLP) and the Thessaloniki Port Organisation (OLTH) employees are expected to cause problems to the transport of containers and the luggage handling in the cruise terminals of the two big ports of the country.

    The labour unions of OLP and OLTH have announced repeated strikes as of Thursday, May 26 to protest against the privatisation of the ports.

    "The government goes ahead with the sale of the share capital of OLP and OLTH despite the employees' disagreements. At the same time, despite the repeated meetings, there has been no response from the government to the workers' demand for protection of their labour relations," port labour unions said in a joint statement.
