Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Civil ser­vants will be walk­ing off the job and hold­ing a protest rally in down­town Athens on Thurs­day, after their union, ADEDY, yes­ter­day called for a gen­eral strike. The union is mainly protest­ing planned re­forms to la­bor laws and the op­er­a­tion of the civil ser­vice. It is call­ing on the gov­ern­ment to cease all as­sess­ments of work­ers and ad­min­is­tra­tive struc­tures that could lead to stream­lin­ing, abol­ish all laws that re­sulted in lower salaries and pen­sions, pro­tect col­lec­tive bar­gain­ing and stop all forms of flex­i­ble la­bor. Work­ers will be gath­er­ing at Klafth­monos Square on Sta­diou Street at 11 a.m. to march to Par­lia­ment. Mean­while, ferry ser­vices across the coun­try will be can­celed on Thurs­day due to a strike by sea­men also protest­ing pen­sions cuts and job in­se­cu­rity.
