Greek civil servants’ union calls for week of protests


ADEDY, the civil servants’ union, has called on its members to protest the government’s proposed pension reforms throughout this week.

The union highlighted the reduction of main and auxiliary pensions as well as the unification of funds into one as some of its key concerns about the proposals.

ADEDY is due to take part in a protest by teaching unions DOE and OLME in front of the Education Ministry at 1.30 p.m. on Wednesday.

It will also support a work stoppage by state hospital employees’ union POEDIN between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Thursday.

It is thought that ADEDY, along with private sector union GSEE, may call a new 48-hour general strike at the end of this month or early in March.
