EPSU shows solidarity with Greek 24h General strike

(6 October 2010) ADEDY will strike tomorrow 7 October to protest against the measures of the Greek Government, backed by the European Commission and the IMF, that have been included in the draft of the national Budget for 2011.

These new measures will translate in cuts in pensions, insurance rights, terms and conditions and downsizing of the public sector. The Greek trade union movement has been striking against the austerity measures of the Greek authorities for months. EPSU wishes to show its solidarity with Greek workers and trade unions in their struggle to defend a good quality public sector and a decent work for all.

As in many other European countries unemployment is hitting hard Greece and the priority should not be for the workers to pay the crisis but for jobs and growth to get out of the crisis.

EPSU wishes a successful strike tomorrow in Greece.
