GSEE lines up strike for tabling of pension reforms


Greece’s main private sector union, GSEE, is planning to hold a 48-hour strike whenever the government submits its pension reform plan to Parliament.

The union’s executive committee decided on Wednesday to organize a protest on March 9 but to hold off strike action until the reform scheme, which is still being discussed between the coalition and the country’s lenders, is ready.

GSEE claimed that the government’s plans are “not sustainable morally.”

GSEE and civil servants’ union ADEDY have already organized a general strike against the pension reforms, on February 4.
