Trade Unions Announced 24-Hour General Strike on May 17

    The General Confederation of Employees of Greece (GSEE) and the civil servants’ union federation ADEDY — between them representing the majority of Greece’s unionized workers — on Thursday reached a joint decision to hold a 24-hour general strike on May 17.
    The decision was made at a meeting held at GSEE’s headquarters, with ADEDY and other social organizations.

    The general strike is held in protest against the “unfair and harsh measures” that the government is preparing to vote for and implement. Trade unionists also clarified that if the date for voting in the measures is brought forward, the date of the strike will be rescheduled.
