    The aim of the government during the negotiations is to prevent the widespread deregulation of the labour market, Labour Minister George Katrougalos on Monday said in an interview with public broadcaster ERT.

    He underlined that the issue of mass layoffs is a red line adding that Greece needs new labour positions and not layoffs. Regarding pensions, he reassured that there will be no reductions. On the contrary, he said, some of them will be slightly increased.
