Meeting between Tsipras and POE-OTA concluded – New proposals on the table

The meeting between Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and the trade unionists in the POE-OTA union federation, which represents the majority of local authority workers, was concluded on Tuesday.

The two sides met in order to try and find a solution that addresses the demands of municipal sanitation workers and avoids dangers to public health as a result of lengthy periods of uncollected refuse combined with the high temperatures expected in the coming days.

The president of the federation said that the prime minister made new proposals that they will examine later in the day, however, he did not reveal whether the strike will be suspended.
