Greece’s Public Power Corp (PPC) is set to face another strike from its workers protesting over wage and pension cuts.
The state-owned firm’s workers union wants the government to withdraw the 7% cut in wages and 10% cut in pensions.
The cuts are a part of government measures taken under pressure from markets and the European Union to support the country’s debt-ridden finances, reports Reuters.
The PPC, which faced a worker walk-out recently has added power imports from Bulgaria, Italy and Serbia to cope with demand and avert widespread outages in the country.
The 48-hour rolling strike could begin on 24 March 2010 if talks between the government and the union fails to resolve the issue.
