Public Hospital Workers Stoppage Tomorrow

Public hospital workers in the Attica region will walk off the job from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday and stage a protest rally outside the Health Ministry at 11 a.m. They are protesting government plans for a performance evaluation that may determine whether they are kept or let go as part of a civil service overhaul.
Other civil sector workers held a stoppage and protest on Tuesday, though the turnout was quite small and did not cause any major disruptions in the city center.
The bill concerning the evaluation of civil servants is one of Greece’s obligations under the memorandum rules and will be tougher on workers, potentially opening the way for layoffs.
Civil servants with a low score on the evaluation test will be in danger of labor mobility or even exit from the public sector in general. Those close to the average will be put into special training courses or even transferred to other departments, where they will be able to perform better.
From now on, evaluators will not only judge the performance and achievements of each worker according to their typical qualifications, such as education and skills, but will also take into account the possibility of excelling in their work environment. Essentially, there will be specific quotas for the respective rating scales (from 1 to 10) where workers will be categorized according to their evaluation.
Additionally, there will be a certain percentage of workers that can receive each grade. For instance, 25% will be able to receive 9 and 10 on the rating scale, 60% will be able to receive a grade of 7 or 8, and 15% will be rated between 1 and 6.
