Greek civil servants go on strike

SHAFAQNA- Sep 24,Greek civil servants on a nationwide strike against planned job cuts gathered outside a court in Athens to show solidarity with cleaning staff laid off by the Finance Ministry last year.

According to Press TV, the civil servants gathered outside the court in Athens on Tuesday, where a final decision was due in the case of 595 female janitors who were illegally laid off by the Greek Finance Ministry in September 2013.

The laid off cleaning staff have so far been successful in winning the legal battle, yet the ministry refuses to rehire them despite a binding ruling in their favor issued in April this year.

Among the thousands of civil servants who have come to the cleaning ladies support are the ousted journalists of now defunct national broadcaster ERT.
