ATHENS – Greece’s civil servants’ union, ADEDY, has called a 24-hour strike for Sept. 23d to protest a court decision banning it from preventing its members taking part in the public sector evaluation scheme.

The first instance court in Athens deemed illegal last week ADEDY’s attempt to block the assessment of civil servant’s work performance. Despite the ruling, ADEDY said it would continue to press its members not to take part in the evaluations although Administrative Reform Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has warned there would be consequences for workers as well as Mayors who are resisting.

The reform is one of many demanded by the country’s international lenders in return for bailouts. Greek workers, often criticized as being lazy, shiftless, and inefficient, don’t want to be evaluated or graded on their performance, fearing they could be fired.
