AICCTU Statement: In Solidarity with June 10 General Strike in Greece!


The working class and toiling masses of Greece will embark on an historic General Strike on June 10 against the anti-labour Bill proposed by the conservative New Democracy (ND) government. The Bill introduces several anti-worker measures, including increasing the working hours from 8 up to 10 hours per day,  scraping the five-day working week and curtailing the right to strike. The proposed bill is a barbaric attack on the rights of the workers, hard earned through long struggles.
