The nation’s new conservative government under Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, that took office in July, is preparing labour legislation changes that will influence the capability to attack, collective labor agreements and labor unions.
Hospitals, say schools and public transportation also confronted disruption, though Athens’ underground was supposed to stay untouched for the majority of the day.
ADEDY, that has been linked by additional labor unions in its own action, states the projected changes could hamper the right to attack and also reduce workers rights, and is an effort to control marriages.
The fluctuations are both unpopular with a few employees. George Stefanakis, a 35-year-old cook, stated:”This really is a law, it’s undemocratic, it supplies everything to the companies — tax breaks, and whatever salary they pick.
“They are going to have the ability to reduce salaries any time they need based on their strategies and gains, leaving our livelihood as well as the employees needs apart.”
The authorities program also presents a fast-track licensing procedure for important investments — and disciplinary action for civil servants that postpone the procedure. Mitsotakis came to power pledges to accelerate investments, create jobs and spur growth in a nation still reeling from a fiscal catastrophe.
Of the proposed steps, resort employee Vangelis Karatzas, 56, said:”Much like the emergency with its [austerity] steps, currently there are new expansion steps, which cripple the employees.”
