Iliopoulos: Labor Minister Wants to “Legitimize Unpaid 10-Hour Working Shifts”

ATHENS — SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance spokesperson Nassos Iliopoulos slammed the government's labor bill in statements on Wednesday.

"The only thing that Labor Minister Hatzidakis wants to achieve with this bill is to legitimize10-hour unpaid working shifts and offer backing to employers who do not want rules and regulations," said Iliopoulos.

The main opposition party spokesperson added that the labor minister's argument that every working parent will have extra time to spend with one's family should be compared with "the abolition of Sunday holiday in a number of sectors (…) and the first-time legislation of split schedules in part-time work."

What workers need the most, he underlined, "is a raise in minimum wages, collective labor agreements and a sufficient, effective regulatory mechanism against employers' illegality."


ATHENS - Details will soon be announced regarding the construction of the new 140-kilometre border fence in Evros, Citizen Protection Minister Takis Theodorikakos said on Monday in an interview with ANT1 TV.
