Greece -24-hour strike against austerity -October 16, 2013

The private sector trade union GSEE and the public sector union ADEDY will hold a 24-hour strike on 6 November to protest against austerity measures and public sector layoffs demanded by the country's international lenders. With this strike the unions want to warn the government and the troika (the three main lenders, the EU, the ECB and the IMF) that Greek families cannot take any more austerity and have reached their limits. The protest is against thousands of planned job transfers and layoffs. Together, both unions represent more than half Greece's work force.
