Greece – The end of public sector 103 years job security enshrined in the Greek Constitution

Last summer, job cuts were scheduled at vocational and technical schools across Greece and staff were Greeceasked to reapply for their old jobs, or another position. As of Monday, March 23, around 400 of the total 1,845 teachers who didn’t apply for other positions, and who have not been offered other posts, will be fired. Thus ending the public-sector job security enshrined in the Greek Constitution 103 years ago.

Dismissal of public-sector employees was forbidden in Greece in 1911 after a new constitution was adopted by the government of PM Eleftherios Venizelos, which declared that all public sector employees should enjoy job security due to the nature of their profession in aiding the proper functioning of the state. Beforehand, civil servants were used as pawns by politicians and were hired and fired with the shifting tides of the Greek party political landscape.
