Unionists Protest Social Security Fund Changes by Blocking EFKA Entrance

On Tuesday morning unionist gathered at the new EFKA social security fund in downtown Athens and blocked the entrance in protest to the new reforms which have merged the majority of Greece’s social security funds under one umbrella.

“We want to send a cry of agony over the fate of our social security system, as EFKA has already created administrative chaos and while the new super-fund was supposed to solve problems, it has already created much larger ones,” Evangelos Theodoridis, the head of the IKA-ETAM union told ANA-MPA.

Theodoridis also expressed to the news agency that this was the first of many actions that the unionists planned on taking in protesting the social security reforms.
