Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Gior­gos Ka­trouga­los (l) sought yes­ter­day to form a com­mon front against the coun­try’s cred­i­tors, with the par­tic­i­pa­tion of em­ploy­ers’ as­so­ci­a­tions and work­ers’ unions, ahead of Septem­ber’s talks on the re­form of the coun­try’s la­bor sys­tem. The as­so­ci­a­tions and the unions have un­der­taken to draft a joint text by Fri­day, seek­ing sup­port from po­lit­i­cal par­ties, too, with the de­clared in­ten­tion to ‘take the big step of Greece’s re­turn to the Euro­pean so­cial model so as to strengthen the rights of the work­ers,’ as the min­is­ter ex­plained it. He said the ‘na­tional so­cial front’ will ‘help us re­pel the ex­treme ne­olib­eral po­si­tions of the well­known play­ers.’
