ADEDY and GSEE demonstrate
PSI Greek affiliate ADEDY, together with the Greek General Confederation of Labour (GSEE) began a 24-hour nationwide strike on 4 February, in protest against the planned overhaul of the pensions system in Greece.

Many unions from a wide variety of sectors have also voiced their disapproval of the proposed Government Bill that was only negotiated with the employers’ associations. The Bill will mean an increase in social security contributions while imposing further cuts on workers’ benefits.
