Non-compliant rectors plan Brussels appeal over mobility

The rectors of eight universities who have failed to supply the Education Ministry with details of their 4,574 administrative staff, a third of whom must join a so-called mobility scheme, are reportedly seeking a meeting with troika officials to press their case.

The rectors are planning to travel to Brussels this Thursday to brief the European Parliament on their demands, Kathimerini understands.

Meanwhile the ministry has drafted legislation foreseeing the suspension of all the universities’ administrative staff unless all eight institutions submit lists of their employees along with the additional information necessary for authorities to evaluate them.

Workers appear unmoved, however, and have said they will continue with strike action this week, while also launching a legal suit over the mobility scheme, which foresees staff being put on heavily-docked wages ahead of their transfer to another post or dismissal from the public sector.
