30-08-2010

A growing number of public sector employees say they will join the planned anti-government protest action on September 21st. The demonstration originally called by police and firemen’s trade unions will be joined by soldiers, teachers and health workers. They are protesting against the government’s plans to introduce a 10 percent wage cut, lay off employees and amend the labour code in a way that will restrict employees’ rights.
