Civil servants call 3-hour walkout for Tuesday

The civil servants? union, ADEDY, on Wednesday called on its members to join a three-hour work stoppage, beginning at noon on Tuesday, November 15.

Civil servants, who have seen their salaries and pensions slashed over the past year-and-a-half, will be holding the action as part of their continued protests against the government?s austerity drive.

ADEDY and the country?s main labor union, known by its acronym GSEE, have staged a series of general strikes over the past few months, demanding that the government revoke cutbacks and structural reforms that have been voted through Parliament and new measures that are still to be approved.
