The Public Power Corporation workers' union GENOP-DEH on Wednesday announced the launch of a struggle to prevent any further privatisation of the PPC through the sale of additional shares or by handing over the company's management to private interests.

With the slogan "We are not selling and are not for sale," GENOP-DEH reiterated its disagreement with any move toward privatising the national electricity provider, saying that this would "lead with mathematical accuracy to the Greek people having to pay three times as much" for their power.

The union also stressed that all of the PPC's infrastructure, property assets and resources such as its 'underground wealth, lignite and water in its dams' were the property of the Greek people and must on no account be included in the government's planned sales.
