  • [01] Labour unionists satisfied with participation in 24-hour nationwide strike called by General Confederation of Workers of Greece

  • [01] Labour unionists satisfied with participation in 24-hour nationwide strike called by General Confederation of Workers of Greece

    Labour unionists expressed satisfaction over the extent of participation in the 24-hour nationwide strike called by the General Confederation of Workers of Greece (GSEE) on Tuesday, as well as over the size of the rally held in front of the House of Parliament in the afternoon, stressing that nobody could have expected a qualitatively more massive gathering in the heart of the summer and with public transport on strike.

    The unionists spoke of a message by working people to employers and the government, insisting that the bill arranging working time and decreasing the cost of overtime work must be withdrawn, adding that strike action will be escalated in autumn, regardless of the outcome of the vote to be held in Parliament.

    GSEE President Christos Polyzogopoulos, addressing the rally, said the measures contained in the bill have no consensus among working people, they only serve employers' interests, abolish eight-hour work and transfer income from working people to employers.

    He warned that labour unions will wage a continuous struggle to overturn these measures as of this coming autumn and called on the government to withdraw them and spoke of a message to all the political parties that these measures will not pass.
