3-hour work stoppage by Greek air traffic controllers on Mon.

A union representing air traffic controllers in Greece on Wednesday announced a three-hour work stoppage (10.00 to 12.00 GMT) for Monday, Jan. 15, 2018, in protest over a vote the same day in Parliament of a draft bill that includes a provision mandating a "50 percent+1" approval of any strike action by due-paying members of a primary level trade union. 

The industrial action will coincide with a similar work stoppage declared by a nationwide union representing civil servants.

Big multi-bill brings in strike, auction changes

One of the most politically contentious aspects of the bill is the change to the rules governing strikes by unions. According to the draft legislation, at least half of the paid-up members of first-level unions will have to vote before a strike can be called. The current proportion stands at a third. The private sector union GSEE and its public sector counterpart ADEDY have said they will protest this measure.

The civil servants' union ADEDY is planning a 24-hour strike over the coming days to protest the government's continuing austerity program, sources indicated on Monday.

No dates were mooted for the strike, which is likely to affect public services.
