Greece - Civil servants on strike - November 30, 2016

The trade union of civil servants (ADEDY) has organised a 24-hour nationwide strike to complain on the dramatic growth of part-time employment and demand the annulment of laws leading to drastic cuts in wages. The action is followed by ferryboats and cargo ships staff, sailors and government offices workers. Hospitals admit only emergency cases and medical staff protested against the shortage of doctors and insufficient resources for healthcare. During the action, demonstrations are being held in Athens and Thessaloniki. Students, pensioners, farmers and teachers also joined the protests in support of civil servants.
