Greece's largest public sector union says it will join a nationwide general strike April 9 to protest austerity measures. The ADEDY union said Thursday it was joining the strike call issued by the GSEE union a few days ago. ADEDY said it was also organizing a demonstration outside Parliament on the day lawmakers vote on a new bill legislating the latest measures agreed to between Greece and its international lenders. The bill has not yet been submitted to Parliament, but is expected to be voted on Sunday night. Athens agreed on the measures last week, But some of them have raised serious objections from lawmakers inside the two-party governing coalition.
