Greece: Public Hospital Employees Hold Work Stoppage

ATHENS – The Panhellenic Federation of Public Hospital Employees (POEDIN) on Monday held a work stoppage from 11:00 to 15:00 and organised a rally at the health ministry to demand the reinforcement of the public health system and the resolution of financial and other demands.

“Instead of realising the importance of strengthening the public health sector in primary care, hospital care and intensive care, their announcements put a gravestone on the national health system after abolishing fundamental principles,” it underlined.

The federation demanded that no employee on a fixed-term contract be fired, that there should be no return of contractors to hospitals, noting that they “cost the public sector 30-50 pct more than the fixed-term contracts while offering half the money that the employees employed there are entitled to receive.”


ATHENS - Marking the two-year anniversary of Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine, Greece reiterated its support for the fight, the Foreign Ministry declaring Greece remains “determined to continue to support Ukraine” in its just fight for its independence, two years after Russia’s invasion.
