Chania Post participates in the nationwide 24-hour strike
Greek mass media will strike from 6:00 am on Wednesday until 6:00 am on Thursday, ahead of the general strike that has been scheduled by the country’s public and private sector unions (GSEE and ADEDY) for Thursday.
The media strike is organized one day in advance of the nationwide strike, so that employees in the field can take part in the mobilization called by their unions.
In addition to Wednesday’s strike, journalists’ unions have called for a three-hour work stoppage from 11:00 am until 2:00 pm on Thursday and a protest rally outside the union’s building in downtown Athens.
Thursday’s 24-hour nationwide strike is the 32nd since 2010 and the mobilization is in protest against the government’s austerity policies as well as the measures to be passed in the 2015 draft budget.
