Greece -Dockworkers strike -October 22, 2015

Dockworkers walked out in protest at the planned privatisations of the country's two biggest ports, a condition of a multi-billion euro bailout from international lenders. A statement from the dockworkers' trade union vowed to avert privatisations and accused the government of attempting to sell out to what they call ‘foreign owned monopolies’. The trade union said its goal is to avoid any sales process, ensure labour relations through collective bargaining and ensure a sustainable pension system.
