Greece -Unionists occupy finance ministry -June 11, 2015

Trade unionists are afraid any new deal will demand further painful cuts.

Trade unionists have occupied the finance ministry as talks between the Greek government and the country’s lenders intensify. While growing numbers of European heads of state and government are pressuring the Tsipras government to accept a bailout deal, people in the streets of Athens are afraid any new deal will demand further painful cuts. Public broadcaster ERT, reopened after the last change of government, reports that trade unionists are calling on the government to make deals with the country’s pensioners, unemployed and precarious workers in mind.
