Greece -Trade unions say undermining of collective agreements has led to outsourcing -April 06, 2015

Undermining of collective agreement has led directly to an increase in employment outsourcing by companies under worse conditions.

In a recent report for Equal Times, trade unions have said that the undermining of collective agreement has led directly to an increase in employment outsourcing by companies. As austerity measures led to the cancellation of many company and sector collective agreements, individual contracts are now the common contract in Greece. Unions report that in the absence of regulations in collective agreements, more and more workers are hired under contracts with temp agencies under worse conditions.
