The head of the Public Power Corporation?s labor union, Nikos Fotopoulos, has reportedly called on fellow unionists to bring Greece to a standstill during next week?s general strike in a bid to force the government to abandon its latest austerity measures.
Fotopoulos proposed that unionists take over ministries and public buildings in a sign of protest and that the general strike be followed by rolling 48-hour strikes.
?We have to make it impossible for them to count the number of sit-ins,? he is reported to have said during a meeting of the General Confederation of Greek Labor (GSEE), Greece?s main private sector union.
?Everything has to stop dead,? said Fotopoulos, whose union is known for its militant activity.
