Post office workers to decide on whether to protest sell-off

Greek postal workers are due to meet on Monday to decide whether to take action against the government?s decision to privatize the post office.

An inter-ministerial committee for privatizations approved the sale of state stakes in ELTA SA, the country?s postal service, and Hellenic Vehicle Industry SA on Friday.

Greece?s state assets sales fund will decide on the sale process for as much as 100 percent the state owns in ELTA, which will be transferred to the sales fund at a later stage, according to the website for government decisions.

The post office employees appear opposed to the sell-off decision and are to decide on possible protest action.
