Greek municipal workers strike for 2nd day

Published: 07.09.13, 13:23 / Israel News

Greek municipal workers went on strike for the second day Tuesday to protest their inclusion in a government plan to reduce the number of civil servants and meet criteria for the country to continue receiving vital funds from its international bailout.


The 24-hour strike comes a day after Greece's creditors approved the disbursement of 6.8 billion euros ($8.7 billion) from the rescue package that is keeping the country afloat. To continue receiving the money, Greece must stick to cut and reform plan it has agreed to, including the firing of several thousand civil servants. (AP)
