GSEE Announces 24-Hour Nationwide Strike on June 10

ATHENS — The General Confederation of Employees of Greece (GSEE), Greece's largest umbrella trade union organisation representing workers in the private and public sector, on Monday decided to hold a 24-hour nationwide strike on Thursday, June 10.

GSEE said that the strike is held in opposition to the government's draft labour law, to which it has voiced strong objections, "and which if implemented will strike a huge blow to the labour market, collective autonomy and to society."

It said GSEE's executive committee will meet after the strike to plan its next actions.
