48-hour strike against pension reforms

Greek journalists are holding 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 Friday and resume work at the same time on Sunday, according to the federation’s statement.

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