Greece -ITUC ranks Greece amongst worst countries to work in -May 21, 2014

The International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) has ranked Greece amongst the worst countries to work in.

The International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) has ranked Greece amongst the worst countries to work in. At its world congress, the ITUC presented its new ITUC Global Rights Index that divides countries into six categories. While category one contains countries where workers’ rights are guaranteed both by law and in practice, category five represents countries where both legislation and access to rights are lagging. The category five, in which Greece is found, was described by the ITUC as the worst countries in the world to work in. The index has a category 5+ for countries where no rights exist in practice because of a complete breakdown of the rule of law.
