The General Confederation of Workers of Greece (GSEE) has called a 3-hour work stoppage throughout the Attica prefecture for Tuesday, December 14, beginning at noon, in protest of an omnibus bill tabled in parliament by the government drastically affecting labor relations and the public utilities and organisations (DEKO).

The General Confederation of Workers of Greece (GSEE) has called a 3-hour work stoppage throughout the Attica prefecture for Tuesday, December 14, beginning at noon, in protest of an omnibus bill tabled in parliament by the government drastically affecting labor relations and the public utilities and organisations (DEKO).

GSEE also called a protest demonstration that same day at 1:00 p.m. at Syntagma Square in downtown Athens.

A spokesman for GSEE called the draft law "unacceptable", saying it would sweep away fundamental labor rights.

"We will reverse it, in action, with our struggle," the spokesman, Stathis Anestis, said, adding that the mobilisations will not stop with the December 15 general strike it has called, together with its counterpart civil servants' umbrella federation ADEDY, but will continue "for as long as the one-sided policies that put the burden exclusively on the backs of the working people continue".
