Thessaloniki Mayor Vassilis Papageorgopoulos lends a hand yesterday as hundreds of municipal garbage collectors started cleaning up over 5,000 tons of trash that accumulated across the city during their nine-day strike. The action was called off late on Tuesday after Parliament passed a motion allowing the mayor to pay strikers the productivity bonuses they had been demanding. The cleanup is expected to take up to five days.
