Athens contract sanitation workers continue strike

Uncollected rubbish began to pile up on the streets of Athens as industrial actions by municipality of Athens contract workers continued, with the ongoing City Hall sit-in and the occupation of the municipal garbage truck terminal.

All initiatives undertaken by Mayor Giorgos Kaminis, aimed at finding a solution to the crisis, were unsuccessful.

Strikers called for a "political solution" for the roughly 2,000 contract workers facing redundancy.

Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) parliamentary group leader Alexis Tsipras met with the strikers on Tuesday morning and called for a solution to their problem.

Communist Party (KKE) general secretary Aleka Papariga met with them on Monday.
