Municipal workers launch four-day strike

Municipal authority workers launched a four-day strike with a protest rally on Friday, in protest at fresh austerity measures and also in demand that employees on short-term contracts be granted permanency. The action is expected to affect every area of municipal services, including kindergartens and garbage collection, prompting authorities yesterday to urge citizens not to take out the trash for the duration of the strike.
