Civil servants to join strike by teachers, hospital staff

Greece’s ADEDY public sector union has called on civil servants to walk off the job on June 8 in solidarity with hospital workers and public school teachers who will be striking on the same day.

The stoppage by civil service employees will run from 11 a.m. until the end of the day’s shift so as to allow workers to take part in a rally by the federation of public hospital workers, POEDIN, outside the Health Ministry and a march by teachers to Parliament.

In a statement, the union said that the public education and healthcare systems are being trampled on and are on the brink “of total collapse due to the coalition government’s obsession with its policies” that act against the interests of the people.
