Unions confirm action on May 17 against austerity
The country’s civil servants’ union ADEDY and the main private sector union GSEE confirmed on Tuesday that they would hold a joint 24-hour walkout for May 17 to protest additional austerity measures agreed to by the government in a deal sealed with creditors early yesterday.
In a statement, GSEE slammed the government for cutting pensions once again “without shame” and “proceeding relentlessly toward the total demolition of the welfare state, health, education and social insurance.”
The date of the strike is aimed at coinciding with the parliamentary vote on the new measures, which government spokesman Dimitris Tzanakopoulos said yesterday would take place around May 16.
