Employees of OPAP S.A., the state-run betting and lottery pools, on Monday announced that they will hold a 24-hour warning strike on Wednesday in protest to the government’s plans to sell off the state-owned company shares to private investors, as they charged.
A statement issued by OPAP employees underlined that they will “firmly resist the unreasonable selling off of productive public property”, stressing that “such moves are against national interests and to the detriment of the Greek citizens”.
