ATHENS, Greece – Unions in Greece have a three-day general strike to protest a parliamentary vote on a new round of bailout austerity measures.
Starting Friday, state-run and municipal services, including garbage collection, will be disrupted for three days. Ferries services will be halted for four.
Lawmakers are currently debating an overhaul of the pension system, proposed by the country's left-wing government under Greece's obligations to rescue lenders from other countries using the euro. They will vote on the draft legislation late Sunday.
Talks on what reforms Greece should make next have been delayed for months, delaying the payout of vital bailout loans and weighing on the economy's outlook.
