General strike on November 6 as public sector workers join action

Greece’s civil service umbrella union, ADEDY, on Thursday confirmed that it will be joining a 24-hour strike planned by its private sector counterpart, GSEE, for November 6.

Public sector workers will walk off the job for 24 hours to protest layoffs and other austerity measures adopted by the government in response to creditors’ demands.

Other than bringing the civil service and parts of the private sector to a standstill, the strike will also see all passenger and cargo ferries remaining in port as the seamen’s union, PNO, has also said it will join the action.
