Journalists will join forces with GSEE and ADEDY for coordinated strike action against the pensions reform bill

Journalists will join forces with the General Confederation of Employees of Greece (GSEE) and the civil servants’ union federation ADEDY for coordinated strike action against the pensions reform bill to be passed in Parliament, the national federation of journalists’ unions POESY decided in a meeting on Wednesday.

The time and manner of the strike action will be further specified when the date for debating the bill before the Parliament plenum is announced.

POESY said journalists are striking in protest against the decision to abolish the ‘advertising stamp duty’ that funded their pension and health funds and the forced merger of the ETAP-MME pension fund for media personnel, as announced on April 27.
