Greek power workers poised for rolling strikes

Public Power Corporation (PPC) employees are to launch rolling 24-hour strikes from next Tuesday in protest at plans to sell the Independent Power Transmission Operator – known by its Greek acronym ADMIE – one of the power board’s subsidiaries.

The first day of the strike has been timed to coincide with the scheduled submission in Parliament of the bill outlining the sale.

Unionists have insisted that the action will not result in power cuts but rather in delays for repairs.
