Municipal workers to continue labor mobility protests until Thursday

Municipal workers are to continue their protests, including sit-ins at town halls, until Thursday, their union (POE-OTA) decided late on Monday.

It is the fourth week of protests by the employees, who are attempting to prevent mayors sending to the Administrative Reform Ministry lists of municipal workers that could be placed into a labor mobility scheme.

The civil servants will receive a reduced salary while in the scheme and could be fired if a new position has not been found for them after 12 months.

The protests will be accompanies by work stoppages between noon and 3 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. depending on whether employees are on morning or afternoon shifts.
