The country’s civil servants’ union ADEDY said on Thursday that it was determined to continue with action protesting a troika-imposed evaluation scheme for public sector workers even though a court found the union’s appeal against the scheme illegal, for the second time.

The country’s civil servants’ union ADEDY said on Thursday that it was determined to continue with action protesting a troika-imposed evaluation scheme for public sector workers even though a court found the union’s appeal against the scheme illegal, for the second time.

Following last month’s court ruling, which found a protracted civil servants’ strike against the evaluation scheme to be illegal and abusive, Thursday’s decision rejected the action for technical reasons. The court deemed that a strike must be called by ADEDY’s general council, not by its general assembly, as was the case. Reacting on Thursday, the union said it would convene a session of its general council on August 21.
