Sounds as though GSEE and PNO (seamen's union) will be on 24 hour strike on 09 April.


Various baby beds from IKEA recalled, potential problem with mosquito netting.

Government officials were working over the weekend on the wording of a new law governing the sale of fresh milk, which is proving to be the key obstacle to coalition MPs’ full support for the multi-bill of reforms Parliament will have to pass for Greece to receive its next bailout tranche.

As an urgent matter: Troika agreement bill will come in three articles

One article will include the provisions for the recapitalization of banks, the second the OECD prerequisites and the third the fiscal arrangements - Milk: It will bear the production and expiry date and the indication “fresh Greek” of 2, 3 or 4 days

As was natural the discussion was focused on milk, as both New Democracy and PASOK MPs are threatening to vote against it.
 
The same sources said the representative of the Ministry informed them that the initial troika requirement was for a full deregulation of the market, which would constitute as the same product the one-day milk with that of 11 days. Eventually, it was agreed to adopt the logic of day’s milk, as well as the mandatory labeling “fresh Greek milk.”
 
The participants in the meeting decided that "the product will bear the production and expiry date and the indication that it is Greek fresh milk of 2, 3 or 4 days."
