General Accounting Office staff begin four-day strike on Tuesday

Staff at Greece's General Accounting Office have announced a four-day strike beginning on Tuesday, in opposition to the removal of authority over certain functions from GAO services and cuts to their fund finances. A meeting with Deputy Finance Minister Philippos Sahinidis is pending, however, to discuss their demands.

The four-day strike, if it takes place, is expected to block payment of Easter benefits to pensioners and public-sector staff, as well as payment of public-sector salaries since there will be no one to sign payment orders to banks.
