Telecoms union to strike over lay-offs at Cosmote

The Hellenic Telecommunications Organisation (OTE) trade union OME-OTE on Tuesday announced a strike and other forms of labour mobilisation in response to 120 lay-offs at the telecoms group's mobile phone service provider Cosmote.

OME-OTE called a 24-hour strike next Friday for the entire OTE group and will decide on further labour action next Tuesday.

Cosmote has justified the lay-offs on the grounds that the company is downsizing and shedding some operations but OME-OTE rejected the decision as "arbitrary and heartless behaviour" and called on management to take back the decision and to sign a collective labour agreement that would protect the rights of the workforce at OTE.
