Oct. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Greece’s biggest private sector union group, GSEE, said it won’t hold talks with European Union, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund officials in Athens, the so-called troika, according to an e- mailed statement from Athens-based GSEE today.

“Our red lines were crossed a long time ago and the measures being proposed are completely opposed by Greeks,” GSEE President Yiannis Panagopoulos said in a copy of a letter sent to the troika in response to an invitation to hold talks.
