Greece - Unions plan protest strikes - December 24, 2009

On 22 December, the civil servants' trade union ADEDY announced that it plans to stage a 24-hour strike in late January or early February against the labour and wage reforms planned by the government, in the face of ballooning debt and deficits. "We will not accept that the cost of the crisis will be borne on our
shoulders," ADEDY president Spyros Papaspyros explained to press agencies.
The private sector union, the General Confederation of Greek Workers, also
said to consider a strike.
