Greece - Confederation calls general strike over austerity measures - April 19, 2011

The private sector union confederation, GSEE, has called a 24-hour strike for 11 May to protest the government’s latest austerity measures. Its General Secretary, Nikos Kioutsioukis, argued: “The government’s policies are not bearing fruit and we will fight against them.” ADEDY, the country’s largest public sector union, will also take part in the strike, its spokeswoman Despina Spanou confirmed (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 3 September, October, November and December 2010; Year 4 January, February and March 2011).
