Two more unions join strike action

Two more labor unions said Thursday that they will take part in a general strike on May 17. They are the Hellenic Federation of Private Sector Employees (OIYE) and the Public Hospital Workers Union (POEDIN).

The strike is being held to express dissatisfaction with the latest austerity measures agreed by the government and the country’s creditors.

It will be accompanied by a demonstration in central Athens, which will be held a day before MPs are due to vote on the multi-bill containing the measures.
