Talks bewteen Interior Minister and refuse workers fall through
Talks between Interior Minister Panos Skourletis and a delegation of union workers in the municipalities (POE-OTA) have collapsed after the two sides failed to reach an understanding during a meeting at the Ministry on Monday.
“He [Minister] called us extras, he has decided to hand the cleaning business to private interests”, said the president of the union, Nikos Trakas after the meeting. The union head said the Minister was incapable of handling the very important matter he had created.
Mr. Skourletis had told the media that he intended to submit an amendment in parliament, dubbing the proposals presented to him by the union workers as “out of space and time”. Meanwhile, Athens Prosecutor Mr. Zagoraios has ordered a public investigation of its own motion into the matter after rubbish has drowned the capital for the past week.
