By the end of 2013, 3600 bank employees will leave Greek Banks with voluntary exit programs.
In the new year, 3600 bank employees will be suspended and forced to search for a new job. The reason behind these suspensions is the cut in wages that banks have decided to make. In order to realize these cuts, Greek Banks have already processed voluntary exit programs, reveals Naftemporiki.
In fact, these programs will start tomorrow from Eurobank, as the Hellenic Financial Stability Fund will examine the voluntary exit program of approximately 700 employees.
In November, National Bank of Greece hopes that the voluntary exit program incorporating 2000 employees will be approved.
A similar program is being processed by both Alpha Bank and Attica Bank. It is estimated that this voluntary exit program will incorporate 800 employees of Alpha Bank and 100 of Attica Bank.
We must underline, that 2,182 employees of Piraeus Bank and 615 of Hellenic Post Bank have already been incorporated in similar voluntary exit programs.
