Greek Armed Forces Prepare for Strike Over Pensions

Members of the Greek armed forces protested in Athens on Wednesday morning against the Greek government’s plans to merge their auxiliary pension funds with others.

According to the president of the Panhellenic Federation of Police Officers, Christos Fotopoulos, Greek police officers are considering going on strike.

“If our demands, which are absolutely reasonable, are not met, the members of Greek armed forces will take the next step” he said during the Greek police officers protest in central Athens on August 6.

Furthermore, the members of armed and emergency forces have stopped negotiating with the Greek coalition government and appealed directly to the Compliance Committee of the State Council asking for the full implementation of the decisions regarding the increase of their wages.
