Greece’s electricity workers said on Friday they will start rolling 48-hour strikes as early as next week, to protest austerity measures demanded by the country’s international lenders.
“From the evening of Monday, Oct. 1… rolling 48-hour strikes begin,» said GENOP-DEH, labour union of state-controlled
utility PPC which is the country’s only electricity retailer.
The Oct. 1 strike date applies if the government submits the austerity measures to parliament next week, the statement said.
If the vote takes place later, the strike will be delayed accordingly, the union added.
