Greece -Ambulance workers consider industrial action -June 18, 2015

Threat of strike over unpaid overtime, with claims of no payments for night shifts and holidays since December 2014.

The national health service is crumbling under the strain of austerity as health spending has been slashed in half in the last five years. Ambulance workers have been threatening to strike over unpaid overtime, with claims they have not received payments for night shifts and holidays since December 2014, meaning they have 200-500 euro less every month. So far, ambulance workers have suspended their strike as they do not want to endanger public health especially with the pressure posed by the tourist season.
