Union­ists’ trial.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Four­teen rep­re­sen­ta­tives of univer­sity ad­min­is­tra­tive staff are due to go on trial on Mon­day af­ter be­ing ac­cused of fail­ing to com­ply with a court de­ci­sion that ruled a 48-hour strike they held in Novem­ber 2013 to protest the then gov­ern­ment’s move to place them and their col­leagues in a la­bor re­serve illegal. The sus­pects ar­gued that they are be­ing tar­geted be­cause they are union­ists and have called on col­leagues to stage a one-day strike in a show of sup­port. Sav­vas Pa­padopou­los, one of the union­ists on trial, said they had not abided by the judge’s rul­ing be­cause the strike was ruled illegal, but not abu­sive, for tech­ni­cal rea­sons.
