Hellenic Post calls 24-hour strike for next Wednesday

The union representing employees of Hellenic Post (ELTA) who are based in Attica on Friday called a 24-hour strike next Wednesday, protesting under-staffing and demanding the immediate recruitment of additional workers for the summer period.

Unionists threatened to continue with a four-day strike, from August 11 through 14, if their demands are not met.

They accused the management of ELTA and the government of "dragging out the process of recruiting 645 seasonal employees for months," leading to a growing number of ELTA's services under-performing. The union's statement ended with a call for "immediate intervention," noting that workers' patience had run out.
