The Agricultural Workers Union is trying to drum up support for a two-hour general strike against government policy to take place on September 27th. The protest is aimed against the government’s austerity package which the union says will impact primarily lower income groups, families with children, pensioners and the disabled. Relations between the government and trade unions have been strained since trade unions walked out of a tripartite meeting in June. An attempt to resume talks is to be made on September 24th –just three days ahead of the planned protest.
