State entities and organisations that have been included in the labour reserve measure announced by the government have decided to hold a protest rally at Klafthmonos Square in central Athens, followed by a march to Parliament, on Wednesday.
The decision was announced on Tuesday during a joint press conference held at the School Buildings Organisation by representatives of the union federations POSPERT (representing staff at the state broadcasting company ERT), EIN and POThA and the unions of the state organisation OSK, IGME, ODDY, EOMMEX, EThIAGE, OPEGEP, DIMITRA and HDIKA.
Representatives of the unions criticised higher-level trade union bodies for failing to adequately support the demands of workers in state entities facing closure or merger, leading thousands of public-sector workers to redundancy and unemployment.
A coordinating body for the various unions involved will hold its next meeting on Friday.
