Greece -Opening hour in retail disputed -October 30, 2013

The national federation of private employees (Oiye) has called a 24-hour national strike in a row between the government and workers in the retail sector over a measure providing for stores to stay open on Sunday. Under law 4177, which was passed a few months ago, stores remain open on a number of Sundays every year. The strike is called to defend the day of rest as well as to urge the 'reinstatement of all the main workers' rights' which according to the union were scrapped with the implementation of the Memorandum signed by the government with its international creditors as part of an economic recovery plan.
