Journalists to join general 48-hour strike on Friday and Saturday

Greek journalists said on Thursday they are joining the country’s main unions, GSEE and ADEDY, along with other smaller ones in a 48-hour strike called on Friday and Saturday, against the government’s taxation and pension reform bills which are scheduled to be voted over the weekend.

“The social security/pension bill will impoverish and weaken the entire Greek population, violently unifies the two social security funds, abolishes the ad tax and takes the press as a hostage,” POESY union said.

According to the union, the strike will start at 06:00 (local) on Friday morning and will end at 06:00 on Sunday and will include all public and private media – newspapers, radio, TV stations and online media, as well as the general secretariat of information and communication, ANA-MPA and all press offices.

The union also said it will allow a 15-minute news bulletins which will be broadcast as follows: 15-minute bulletin on radio stations from 13:15 – 13:30 and a 15-minute bulletin on TV stations 20:00 – 20:15.
