Municipal staff to boost protest sitins

Local authority workers, who are protesting the government’s plans to push hundreds of employees into redundancy, are to ratchet up their action next week, occupying city halls and municipal offices across the country.

After occupying more than 250 city halls this week, unionists have vowed to broaden their action to include landfills and public transport depots.

They have also taken over administrative offices to stop the drafting of lists of employees to join the redundancy scheme, as demanded by the troika.
