Strike negotiations to take place in Greece?

People could decide to strike because of the austerity measures being introduced.

13 June 2011

Individuals in Greece want to see a general strike in protest of the government's economic policies.

Thousands of people gathered in Athens to show their frustration at the latest round of austerity cuts, AFP reports.

Should they continue to be disaffected with the leadership of the country, the possibility of nationwide strike negotiations will be raised.

"If these streams of people do not unite, they will be absorbed back into the earth. We need to move on to decisions," the news provider reported a young protester as saying.

It added that the movement is somewhat leaderless at the moment, which may mean that union bargaining will not be as effective as it could be.

The protests came as a number of demonstrators have been showing their unhappiness in Spain.

There has been much discussion about Greece getting a second bail-out in order to protect the long-term security of the country.
