Greece - Municipalities workers rally for job stability - May 31, 2017

Municipal workers staged rallies outside city halls and other public buildings on the third of a four-day nationwide strike. The protest launched by union POE-OTA is aimed at putting pressure on the government to give permanent jobs to thousands of short-term workers after the Court of Auditors ruled that extending fixed-term contracts is a violation of the Constitution. The decision mainly affects cleaners, garbage collection and kindergarten workers who are often employed on successive fixed-term contracts to cover staff shortages, without enjoying the benefits of permanent status.
