ADEDY Declares 24h Strike on June 3 Against New Labour Bill

ATHENS — Τhe board of the Civil Servants Federation (ADEDY) has declared a 24-hour strike on June 3, during a meeting on Wednesday against the voting of the new draft bill introducing changes to labour law.

According to the union's announcement, this decision is simultaneously a proposal to other trade unions of the private and public sector to join in a nationwide strike.

Among others, ADEDY claims that the labour bill "abolishes the eight-hour working day and collective labour agreements, criminalises trade union action and undermines the right to strike, the Sunday holiday and increases unpaid overtime while allowing dismissals without any controls.

"This draft law should not be tabled in parliament or voted for, it should be overturned," ADEDY's announcement said.


ATHENS — Greek authorities say another sailboat carrying dozens of migrants arrived Thursday at Kythera, the third in just under two days to make it to the southern island that isn't on the usual route for asylum-seekers trying to reach the European Union.
