The head of the General Confederation of Employees of Greece (GSEE) Yiannis Panagopoulos, president of the country's largest umbrella trade union organisation, on Wednesday stressed his opposition to the Medium-Term Fiscal Strategy (MTFS) programme that he said 'trampled on labour rights'.
According to Panagopoulos, wage-earners, pensioners, unemployed and the poorer sections of the population were once more being asked to shoulder the bulk of the burden and pay for a crisis they had no part in causing.
