Public servants to protest against gov’t austerity plan

Public servants were set to participate in a rally on Wednesday in protest to the government’s austerity measures. The rally was being organized by ADEDY, the country’s main umbrella union representing civil servants and was scheduled to start on Klafthmonos Square on Stadiou Street in central Athens at 3.30 p.m.

The public workers oppose government plans to streamline the civil service through mergers, privatizations and possible layoffs.

The protest coincides with rallies planned by the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) across the continent on the same day.
