Greek Finance Ministry Workers Block Access to Athens Building

October 12, 2011

Oct. 12 (Bloomberg) -- Greek finance ministry workers blocked access to the ministry’s main building in central Athens as part of protests against government plans to cut jobs and wages.

Members of the Federation of Finance Ministry Unions hung a banner reading ‘Occupation’ from the roof of the eight-story building and hoisted black flags around the roof. The federation plans a nine-day strike beginning Oct. 17, according to an e- mailed statement today.
