The Greek court employees union federation ODYE on Friday announced two-hour warning work stoppages throughout the country from January 11-15, during which all court hearings will be interrupted between the hours 9:00 and 11:00 each morning.

The strike action was decided in order to highlight the problems faced by court administrative staff and find solutions.

Among their complaints are serious staff shortages, with 3,200 positions currently vacant, made even more acute due to recent memorandum legislation that increased the case load for courts.

They also object to government pension reforms that they say roll back pension entitlements, increasing age requirements and lowering pensions.
