Greece Calls on Striking Power Workers to Obey Court Order

Greece’s Energy Ministry called on the union at Public Power Corp SA to abide by a court order directing the striking workers to bring a number of power units back online.

The defiance of the order to the GENOP-DEH union to bring capacity back to June 23 levels is “creating a shortfall which places the stability of the system in a critical situation”, the Athens-based ministry said in an e-mailed statement. The shortage led to extended power cuts today and yesterday, when Public Power sought to have the strike declared illegal, according to the statement.
