Greek workers to use strike negotiations?

Over two million Greek workers could take to the streets in protest.

18 October 2011

A 48-hour strike is being planned by Greek workers to highlight their dissatisfaction at the current state of the country's economy.

Set to take place on October 19th and 20th, it is timed to coincide with a vote on another round of austerity measures, Reuters reports.

Unless union bargaining can find some form of resolution, then the nation could come to a standstill as mass protests ensue.

Prime minister George Papandreou said: "This is maybe the most crucial week for Greece and Europe. It is very important on our part that the entire Greek political class shows a sense of unity and responsibility."

As many as two million people could take to the streets in protest, as transport services, hospitals and food and drink establishments are affected.

Earlier in the year, Greek taxi drivers held demonstrations over plans to deregulate the sector that they feared would make it too competitive.
