Greece -International trade unions worried about Greek crisis -July 03, 2015

Several European trade unions and international trade union bodies have called on the negotiators to work towards a balanced deal. A blog of the US confederation AFL-CIO criticises the IMF and EC policy that forces the country to weaken its collective bargaining structures, lower its labour standards and wages, so that the people are forced to bow to the will of the market. The international trade union confederation ITUC concludes that years of failed austerity policies imposed on the country have impoverished millions and actually worsened the debt crisis. The ETUC is warning for a Grexit that would undermine the credibility of the euro, could derail Europe’s modest economic recovery and create tensions in South East Europe; all for the sake of imposing yet more austerity on a country already on its knees.
