The 397 cleaners who were vindicated by the First Instance Court of Athens after challenging their suspension and subsequent dismissal from the Ministry of Finances are continuing their struggle by staging a protest outside the Ministry.
According to the First Instance Court’s order, the Ministry of Finances must re-hire the cleaners immediately, with the Ministry appealing to the Supreme Court for a suspension of order. The Ministry fears that the court order will set a precedent and jeopardize its controversial suspension and dismissal plans.
Last week, members of the Panhellenic tax office employee federation, which represents the Finance Ministry’s cleaners, filed a complaint over the Minister of Finances’ refusal to implement the court order.
