GSEE calls for a 24-hour nationwide general strike on December 8

he General Confederation of Employees of Greece (GSEE) umbrella trade union organisation – the largest representing Greece’s private and public-sector workers – on Wednesday announced its decision to call a 24-hour nationwide general strike on December 8.

GSEE is also planning central rallies on the same day, and decided on regional meetings to organise protest action in collaboration with union federations, labour centres and other social groups, in order to send a broader message of social dissatisfaction.

GSEE’s leadership also plans to convene the union’s General Council to plan further action against austerity measures, noting that GSEE “will use all the weapons in its arsenal to put an final end of the criminal measures that are being implemented and those that are planned.”
