Greece - Substantial support for latest strike action - October 25, 2010

ADEDY, the civil service union federation, organised a strike on 7 October against the government’s austerity measures and its agreement with the European Union and the International Monetary Fund, which was supported by thousands of civil servants. One element of the agreement is a reform of the public sector pay system; however, ADEDY does not want to enter into talks on this unless the government reverses the cuts in public sector pay implemented earlier in 2010. After a 24-hours’ railway strike on Thursday 14 October, starting Monday 25 October a series of rail strikes are planned (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 3 September 2010).
