Doctors hold 3-hour stoppage Tuesday ahead of Thursday rally

Doctors at public hospitals in Athens and Piraeus are expected to walk off the job from 9 a.m. to noon on Tuesday in protest at an appeal by the management of Evangelismos Hospital against compensation claims by specialized doctors at the Polykliniki clinic, whose back-pay demands have already been settled by a court.

The action will continue on Thursday, when hospital workers are scheduled to participate in a rally for safeguarding collective labor agreements.
