Local government walkout on Monday


The federation of local authority workers (POE-OTA) has announced a nationwide strike on Monday to protest the government’s social security plans and what it describes as its “indifference” to a string of problems burdening local authorities.

Workers will gather outside the Interior Ministry before marching to a branch of the Finance Ministry on Kaningos Street in downtown Athens.

The strike will last from 11.30 a.m. until the end of their normal shift.
