Greek civil servants’ union calls for walkout Thursday

Greece’s civil servants’ union, ADEDY, called yesterday for its members to walk off the job Thursday afternoon to protest against the public sector mobility scheme, “which will speed up the destruction of public services and will lead thousands of civil servants to dismissal and unemployment.”

ADEDY called for protesting state workers to gather in central Athens at 1 p.m. for a rally.

Those working day shifts will not return to their posts until Friday morning.
