November 24, 2020

ATHENS — The Panhellenic Federation of Public Hospital Employees (POEDIN) on Tuesday announced that it will participate in a 24-hour strike announced by the public-sector workers' union federation ADEDY on Thursday, November 26, and is organising rallies at the gate of hospitals at 8:00. At noon it is planning a rally outside the health ministry.

POEDIN demands the granting of a Christmas bonus to all health workers, inclusion of healthcare staff in the arduous and hazardous occupations insurance category, as well as measures to protect public health and workers in the midst of a pandemic with adequate staffing, funding, personal protective equipment and permanent jobs.


Despite being unable to prevent smugglers in Turkey from sending refugees and migrants to Greek islands and the northern land border along the Evros River, Greece has made significant progress in dealing with human trafficking, according to a report by the Council of Europe's Group of Experts on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings (GRETA).
