Greek state hospital employees launch action against mobility scheme

The union representing state hospital employees (POEDIN) on Tuesday became the latest organization to launch legal action against the government’s mobility scheme.

POEDIN argues that the transfers will undermine public healthcare at a time when as many as 2.5 million Greeks are without health insurance.

More than 1,600 health sector employees are being moved to other parts of the public sector as part of the mobility program.
