Greece - Public services union plans national strike - May 26, 2011

On 24 May, Ilias Iliopoulos, General Secretary of the ADEDY public services union told a press agency that his union planned a 24-hours national strike to protest against the government's new package of austerity measures and planned privatisations, stating: “We want to block the new measures, prevent what has been decided. We will continue until we succeed.” According to Iliopoulos, the most likely date for the nationwide strike is June 21, while he added that the private sector sister union GSEE would most likely also call a strike for the same day.
