The union representing Greece’s public sector workers, ADEDY, has organized a rally in downtown Athens at 3 p.m. on Wednesday to protest the government’s pension reform plans.

“The government’s proposals will destroy what remains of the public social security system. These proposals do not constitute a reform that will save the system, as the government argues,” ADEDY said in a statement on Tuesday.

The union also threatened to escalate its protest action with a nationwide strike and blockades of public buildings unless the government withdraws the bill.
