The Professional Chamber of Thessaloniki (EETH) on Monday filed a complaint with the first instance court prosecutor so those responsible for the damages caused to its members as a result of the repeated 48-hour strikes called by the Public Power Corp. (PPC SA) GENOP workers’ union, be prosecuted by the courts.
In response, the prosecutor ordered a preliminary investigation to establish whether criminal offence has been committed.
The chamber maintains that such arbitrary moves cause serious damage to thousands of professionals and “while the right to strike is indisputable, no one has the right to use as they please a public good such as electricity”.
