Greece: Athenians use battering ram on union HQ over right-to-strike

Protesters tried to break down the door of the General Confederation of Greek Workers (GSEE) union in Athens on Thursday, as they protested against the group's decision to back the government’s restrictions on the right to strike. Members of the primary unions gathered outside the GSEE and tried to break down the door while hurling rocks and red paint at the building's facade. The new law... Еще would demand Greek unions to have the support of 50 per cent of their followers to call a strike, instead of the current agreement which states they only need one third of their members. European creditors hope the new bill will quell the frequency of strikes in Greece and subsequently improve levels of productivity in the country. Hundreds took to the streets of Athens on Tuesday to voice their opposition to this bill.
