ADEDY calls a 24-hour general strike and rally for next Thursday

The civil servants’ union federation ADEDY announced a rally in Klafthmonos Square on Thursday at 11:00, on the same day that it has declared a 24-hour general strike.

ADEDY’s strike action was decided in response to the negotiations between the government and institutions on labour issues and trade union rights, which it said would lead to new reversals, such as fully lifting restrictions on mass layoffs and further cuts to the minimum wage, as well as extending regimes of flexible hours and non full-time employment.

Among others, ADEDY wants a stop to processes for the assessment of structures and staff, the abolition of laws reducing permanent positions, the abolition of “rented” employees, part-time employment and flexible hours employment and the abolition of laws that reduced pensions, wages and benefits.
