Greeks protest transport workers' pay cuts
Saturday - 1/26/2013, 6:34am EST
ATHENS, Greece (AP) - Greek workers have marched to parliament to protest upcoming pay cuts for transport workers and the government emergency decree that forced subway employees to end their strike.
The march Saturday by 2,000 members of the PAME union was peaceful.
On Friday, Greek riot police stormed the Athens subway depot to make sure that metro workers went back to work. The subway system had been shut down for nine days but running Friday afternoon. Bus workers have been striking since Thursday.
The debt-strapped Greek government wants to rip up subway workers' contracts and make their pay similar to other civil servants, which would mean pay cuts.
Transport unions are meeting later Saturday to decide on further action.
