Print, electronic media in Greece hold 48-hour strike over pension reforms
Print media in Greece will be on strike on Thursday and Friday in a protest over pension reforms.
The 48-hour strike was called by the Panhellenic Federation of Journalists’ Unions (POESY). The strike will affect electronic media and the semi-state ANA-MPA news agency as well.
The strike will end at 6 a.m. on Saturday, when broadcast media will begin their 48-hour strike.
POESY’s board is due to meet on Friday to decide whether to take further action against the changes to the pension system detailed in a bill the government put to public consultation this week.
