Greek seamen prepare strike against social security reform bill
Greek seamen warned on Monday they will strike in the coming days as a protest to the government’s proposed social security reform bill.
Their union, PNO, described the new bill as “a cause of war” and told ANA-MPA it will meet on Tuesday to decide whether to participate in labour action planned by private sector union GSEE or to protest independently.
POE-OTA federation representing municipal workers also warned of strikes and said it will participate in the rally organized by the civil sector union ADEDY on Jan. 16 in Athens and Crete and on Jan. 30 in Thessaloniki. More labour unions are also expected to intensify their labour action ahead of the submission of the bill to Parliament.
