Local authority workers to stage stoppage, protest on Tuesday


The union representing local authority workers (POE-OTA) has called on its members to walk off the job at 11.30 a.m. on Tuesday.

POE-OTA said the protest is being organized to protest the government’s pension reform plans and because it feels that the Interior Ministry has not taken its concerns about a range of other issues seriously.

Members are due to demonstrate outside the ministry’s headquarters in central Athens at noon on Tuesday. The stoppage will last until the end of the morning shift.
