Greece -Power cuts throughout the country as electricity workers strike -July 03, 2014

Workers from the Public Power Corporation (PPC) have started organising rolling strikes, leading to power cuts throughout the country.

Workers from the Public Power Corporation (PPC) have started organising rolling strikes, leading to power cuts throughout the country. The workers are protesting against the upcoming privatisation of the company, which is expected to lead to parts of the enterprise being sold off and reorganisation. Directly after the start of the strikes, the government moved to have it declared illegal in court. After a court ruling ordering all workers back to work, the unions ended the strike but announced they will continue their protests.
