Greek public and private sectors to launch strike action on Nov 27

Civil servants’ union ADEDY has announced that it will join its private sector counterpart GSEE in the 24-hour general strike on November 27.

The action is primarily aimed at the government’s 2015 national budget, which is due to be voted through Parliament in December.

ADEDY made particular reference in its statement on Monday to the coalition’s plans to overhaul the wage structure in the public sector.

“It is clear that the government’s target is to continuously dismantle social and labor rights,” said the union, which promised further action if the government does not give up on its wage plans.
