Labour Min Achtsioglou to present Greek positions on labour in Brussels

Labour Minister Efi Achtsioglou is visiting Brussels on Wednesday and Thursday to hold a series of meetings with members of the europarliament to whom she will explain the positions of the Greek government on collective labour issues.

According to Labour ministry sources, the Greek minister’s visit aims to underline the importance of the respect to collective autonomy that concerns all European institutions and of course the high democratic institution, the europarliament.

The same sources also said that the issue or the reinstitution of the collective negotiations in Greece as provided by the European social model are expected to be at the top of the Labour Minister’s meetings agenda.

In this context, the sources said, the autonomy of the collective operation which is part of all EU member-states’ constitutional traditions will be highlighted as well as that Greece can’t be at a special exclusion status from the European social acquis.
