Public sector union ADEDY and private sector union GSEE call for a 24-hour strike on December 1st, 2011, the day where the Budget 2012 will be voted at the Greek Parliament. There will be a protest march at 11 pm. GSEE spokesman Stathis Anestis told the press that the strike is the answer to the austerity budget, the social benefits cuts, the labour reserve measures, the policies that erase the labour rights. GSEE stresses in a statement that the union will continue its struggle aiming to “change the MoU-destructive policies that strengthen recession, dramatically increase the unemployment, the debt, the deficits, the social injustice and the poverty.”
Public sector union ADEDY is more likely to join the strike, so get ready for a broader strike on the first day of next month.
