Interior Μin: Over 7,000 permanent cleaning staff to be hired in local government

Over 7,000 permanent positions will open for cleaning staff in municipalities throughout Greece, offered through a selection process to be announced shortly, Interior Minister Panos Skourletis said on Monday at a meeting of the federation of local government staff unions (POP-OTA).

Skourletis accused main opposition New Democracy of supporting a return of 1:5 ratio in staff hirings, or hire for every five vacancies, to reduce the state and local government staff and turn over basic functions to the private sector.
