TAGS: Politics

Public sector union ADEDY on Tuesday called a 24-strike of all civil service workers on Wednesday to coincide with the first round of voting in Parliament on a raft of new austerity measures needed to clinch a third bailout deal with Greece’s international creditors.

ADEDY also called on public sector workers to gather in front of the House at Syntagma Square at 7 p.m. to protest Monday’s agreement between the SYRIZA-lef government and eurozone leaders.

More rallies are expected on the same day.
