Cretepost.gr participates in the 48-hour strike against pension reforms.

Greek journalists are set to hold a 48-hour strike in protest of the government-proposed pension reforms, Greece’s Panhellenic Federation of Journalists’ Unions (POESY) announced.

The Greek government is expected to submit pension reform legislation to parliament this week in order to fulfill demands out forward by the country’s international lenders.

Journalists will walk out on strike at 6:00 a.m. local time on Thursday and resume work at the same time on Saturday, according to the federation’s statement.

All Greek printed and electronic publications, as well as the government’s Secretariat General of Information and Communication, the Athens News Agency and press services across the country will stop working, the statement said, adding that employees of television and radio broadcasters, both public and private, will strike between April 22-24.

The federation stressed the need for urgent mobilization against encroachments on social welfare, pension rights and the defense of sectoral insurance funds.
