Greece: You have right to be homeless
  • The document reaffirms the government’s pledge to dismiss 4,000 civil servants by the end of this year and put 25,000 into a mobility scheme, which would see workers receiving a reduced salary for a year ahead of possible redundancy, as part of Greece’s pledge to creditors to dismiss some 180,000 people from the civil service between 2012 and 2016.

    A scheme for the evaluation of some 450,000 civil servants is also on the cards. This, along with the induction of 12,500 public sector workers into the mobility scheme by the end of the summer are both “prior actions” that have been demanded by troika envoys ahead of their next inspection of Greece’s economic reform program, scheduled for September.
