Builders’ Strike in Greece – 14 November 18
A national strike of builders in Greece was organised on 14 November with great success. More than 90% of workers in the construction sector participated in the strike, with almost 100% participation in big projects in cities such as Salonica, Agrinio, Patra, Ioannina, Herakleion, Larisa and Kavala among others.
The strike will help prepare the new, national strike on November 28. The builders sent a loud message to the government that they will not settle for low salaries, that they are fighting for signing a collective agreement, with raises in their salaries and that they will not back down against the government’s attempts to silence them.
