The union rep­re­sent­ing lo­cal au­thor­ity work­ers, POE-OTA, said yesterday that it will stage a protest out­side the La­bor Min­istry in cen­tral Athens on Tues­day in op­po­si­tion to the gov­ern­ment’s plans to stop clas­si­fy­ing refuse col­lec­tion as an un­healthy and ar­du­ous pro­fes­sion, which al­lows work­ers to re­tire early. “Some peo­ple fail to re­al­ize the daily work­ing con­di­tions for those who work in the mu­nic­i­pal san­i­ta­tion ser­vices and want to make them work un­til the are 67 when many are un­able to reach even 60,” said POE-OTA in a state­ment. The union said it would use garbage col­lec­tion trucks in Tues­day’s protest.
