Greek civil servants to strike Oct 7 against austerity

ATHENS, Sept 21 (Reuters) - Greece’s public sector union ADEDY on Tuesday called a 24-hour strike on Oct 7 to protest against the government’s austerity policies including wage and pension cuts to reduce deficits.

“All workers are asked to massively participate in the rallies and demand the termination of all agreements that did away with rights to work and pensions,” the union said.

Greek labour unions have staged repeated strikes this year against austerity measures and reforms the debt-stricken country has agreed with the IMF and its euro zone partners in return for a 110 billion euro ($138 billion) bailout. (Reporting by George Georgiopoulos)
