Greek ministries launch action against civil servants’ union

The Finance and Administrative Reform ministries have launched legal action against the ADEDY civil servants’ union over a strike it has called for Wednesday in protest at the public sector evaluation process.

The ministries want the courts to deem the action illegal and to prevent ADEDY from holding strikes for the same reason.

The ministries argue that the strike cannot be called by ADEDY’s executive committee but only by its general assembly.

The case is due to be heard on Wednesday, at the same time that civil servants will be staying away from work and protesting in central Athens.
