Head of OLME announces a 24h strike for the 1st day of university entrance exams

Edited by @inflammatory_

Following the board members meeting, head of OLME (Greek Federation of Secondary Education State School Teachers) Nikos Papachristos, spoke to the media saying: 

" The board members of OLME call for a 24-hour strike on Friday 17th May, the first day of national exams and propose to ELME regional unions a 5-day strike from 20th until 24th of May, in protest over the transfer of 4,000 permanent teachers & layoffs of 10,000 supply colleagues. We denote the Ministry of Education still has the option to do what needs to be done, to withdraw the presidential decree for the mandatory transferring of teachers, that would give us the chance to make one step back so that thousands of students manage to avoid the hassle. It was the ministry's disgraceful attitude that sparked the decision for strike action, by bringing on board this plan and at this time in an irreconcilable manner. All labor union movements back this decision except PAME* "

Nine OLME board members voted in favor & two against the strike. ELME regional unions will hold general meetings on Tuesday.

"National exams will run normally & on time" said Education Minister responding to OLME strike announcement. New Democracy MP, Adonis Georgiadis spoke on VIMA FM radio before the decision came out, condemning the prospect of a strike action and suggesting it should become illegal when admission exams for higher education institutes are underway.

OLME union federation stands against 
  • teaching personnel transfer/reductions 
  • plans for 2 extra working hours on a weekly basis without prior salary adjustments

Update by @IrateGreek 11 May 2013 01:05am EEST: According to media reports the government has decided to proceed with immediate civil mobilization of teachers, a procedure under which civilians are mobilized (as in the military) to break a strike.


*PAME is the labor union organisation affiliated with Greece's Communist party

  2. Typically, carpet needs to be replaced every 10 years or so. Harder surfaces such as wood, tile, and vinyl usually last at least 20 – 25 years. This all depends on your exact circumstances, though. To ensure that your new flooring lasts as long as you intend it to, make sure to purchase from a high-quality manufacturer and go through all the proper steps for maintenance.
