Greece -Troika seeks to reduce trade union power -March 17, 2014

The international lenders operating under the flag of the so-called troika have said that the country's state-financed trade unions are too powerful. They want their powers reduced, including the right to strike. The troika wants to stop the practice of time off for trade union work and another measure that is being considered is making strikes illegal unless they have been approved by at least 50% of each union's registered members. Employers will also regain the right to stage lockouts, which they lost in 1982.
