Greek University Employees Announce Yet Another Strike



universitiesThe administrative employees of the University of Athens suggested a new three-day strike on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, to their federation. The employees will hold an Assembly on Tuesday the 26th of November in order to address the five points of the Greek Ministry of Education’s proposal for administrative restructure of the universities.

The General Assembly that was scheduled for Monday was canceled after the government’s appeal to court, with the request to declare the 48-hour strike by the staff, on Monday and Tuesday, illegal and abusive.

A general assembly will be held on Tuesday by NTUA administrative employees during which they will further define their stand in regards to their protests.

It is extremely likely to tilt the balance in favor of continuing the strike, especially given the position of the NTUA Senate that the Faculty is in a situation of inoperability due to suspensions.

Meanwhile the Greek Minister of Education, Konstantinos Arvanitopoulos, stated the Academic Mobility process will begin shortly in order to reposition 650 out of the 1,165 administrative employees who were suspended on the condition that the Universities will finally be opened. He made it known that within the next few days the special three member council will consider all appeals submitted to remedy any injustices that resulted from incorrect data declarations by employees during their census.

NTUA professor Giannis Kalogirou, spoke of huge losses for the research programs of the university, should it remain closed, in an interview for the Greek radio station Athens 98.4. He added that there will be problems on both economic and academic levels, seeing as the Technical University of Athens participates and coordinates many competitive European research programs.

  1. Ha,second article today on public sector strikes in Greece.No wonder Greece is insolvent, does anyone ever work even 1 day a week there?

  2. Just waiting for you Ausgreek.

    Ah the bitterness of being a failure. The only people that disparage America are the ones that have come and failed. I see them at St. Basil’s church all the time. I don’t know how many times these off the boaters give the impressions they are kings only to come and ask me for a job.
    You remind me so much of my cousin’s son a graduate of the National Technical University of Athens the one that spit in my water and now is on his knees begging me for a job.

  3. The luxury of having Internet paid with our $$$.Say Thank You for being able to post in a first place

  4. They are so jealous of America that they can barely disguise it. Pathetic.Yet they have no qualms about blackmailing us for $$$$.Despicable bunch of parasites!

  5. So if you are so important what are you doing here harassing Greeks? Taking time off managing your vast empire? By all means be a proud American. Be assimilated into an American. Leave Greeks to the Greeks. Win win for everyone.

  6. You are no more related to George Washington than I am. Why are so afraid to admit your ethnic roots Tedi? Afraid everyone will find out your real motives for trolling Greeks?

    In the 3 minutes of the day when Tedi isn’t trolling Greeks or touching Tedi.. Tedi is developing a cure to cancer, a quantum computer and faster-than-light propulsion. As you can see by where Tedi spends time, Tedi is a very very important person. We should hang by every word.

  9. Vroma I have lived in Gods country( Australia ) all my life.
    The only time I would even consider coming to America is to perhaps buy cheap property at your expense & to say to you ‘PAY THE RENT”

  10. Actually I agree with you except the ejaculation.
    Hard as he beats himself he cannot ejaculate….only vomit from his mouth.
    Thats why he is here every day beating the meat so hard!!

  11. Well said King!!
    Greece does not need Greek Americans or their money.
    There are new frontiers in not only tourism but also investors ( i.e Russia , China) that are now being examined. Perhaps the pain of the last few years has awoken a new resolve in the Greeks and their legendary ability to survive & overcome against all odds has re-emerged after being dormant for a long time.
    As for us Greek-Australians…. most of us are with you in spirit and one of us is worth at least ten Greek Americans.
    Yamise tous!!

  12. I will say Bye Bye American Pie instead.
    You have obviously ignored the links I have supplied to news items about Americas huge.. huge problems.
    By highlighting them I am an American hater I suppose.
    But when you criticise Greece which also has huge problems you are …doing what??
    Giving us an objective view point???
    The world rejoices at your demise.

  13. Yes ….so jealous.
    Can I come there and embrace poverty??
    Please… please…I can live in my car or under a bridge.
    The average wage in Australia is twice the American.
    There is not a soul in Australia that could possibly be jealous of anything American.
