The International Labor Organization is scheduled to present the findings of its latest study on growth with equity entitled Greece: Productive Jobs for Greece regarding the particularities of job markets.
The study will focus on practical matters of policy, such as how the Ministry of Labor used collective dismissals in order to curb troika demands on labor matters.
One of the main ILO arguments is that solutions for labor-related matters must be tailored to the needs of each country, because what may be considered the optimum practice in Germany, may not translate in Greece.
Regarding the current collective dismissal system in Greece, the study notes that the role assumed by public authorities and the Supreme Labor Council is not in conflict with any of the principles or rights of the ILO treaty.
Additionally, the ILO stresses that a long-term evaluation is necessary in order to determine the efficiency of the collective dismissal system in place in Greece.
