Min­istry clean­ers.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A Supreme Court hear­ing of the ap­peal of 397 Fi­nance Min­istry clean­ers who were dis­missed as part of cost­cut­ting plans by the pre­vi­ous con­ser­va­tive-led coali­tion was yesterday post­poned un­til May 31. The clean­ers were re­hired by SYRIZA’s first ad­min­is­tra­tion, which in­tro­duced leg­is­la­tion re­vers­ing pre­vi­ous de­ci­sions to lay off civil ser­vants or put them in a so-called mo­bil­ity scheme. How­ever, the state has not for­mally with­drawn the ap­peal lodged by the pre­vi­ous con­ser­va­tive-led gov­ern­ment, not­ing that as the clean­ers were put into a mo­bil­ity scheme rather than be­ing un­fairly dis­missed, they do not have the right to claim wages retroac­tively for the 20 months that they were in the scheme.
