Greece - Further strike action against austerity measures - January 27, 2011

The ADEDY civil service confederation is planning another nationwide 24-hour strike on 10 February in protest against the harsh measures adopted by the government in line with its agreements with the European Commission and International Monetary Fund. The Confederation has also called for support from the GSEE private sector confederation. The GSEE, in turn, has announced to organise a 24-hour general strike on 23 February. Most recently ADEDY has said to join this last strike (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 3 September, October, November and December 2010).
