School cleaners to strike over pay, job security

School cleaners to strike over pay, job security

Cleaners at Greece’s public schools are to strike on Monday after the OIYE federation representing private sector workers called a 24-hour walkout to protest low wages and job insecurity.

“The vast majority of cleaners are currently employed on short-term contracts and, as a matter of survival, accept very low wages for the work they do,” the union said in a statement.

Protesters will also be holding a rally outside the Interior Ministry at Klafthmonos Square in downtown Athens, starting at noon.
