ADEDY union condemns hospital blackmailer

Civil servants’ union ADEDY on Wednesday condemned the head of the Sotiria Hospital workers’ union for blackmailing the institution’s director, describing his action as “mafia-like and unacceptable.”

The unionist was arrested after accepting 50,000 euros in marked bills.

He had solicited the cash in return for a promise to avert a protest at the hospital.

ADEDY, however, also criticized some media outlets and the government for “trying to place the struggles of workers and the union movement in the same basket as isolated and condemnable actions.”
