The government spokesman on Tuesday reiterated that "individual business work contracts will have prevalence over the sector-wide work contracts in companies with viability problems,” in comments to an Athens radio station.

Spokesman Giorgos Petalotis said underlined, however, that “the size of the wages will be determined through negotiations ... no decision has been reached yet on whether there will be a ceiling in wage cuts”.

“It is a matter of consultations between employers and employees,” he said, stressing that a condition set by the government is that “wages cannot be smaller than provided by the national collective work contract”.

Finally, he said a relevant draft law has not been finalised yet, considering that the consultation phase is still continuing.
