    (Title) Petsokomma supplementary pensions shows for the next period of propaganda, in which government officials are continuing to “advertise” the importance and the need to continue reforming the insurance which station was the law passed by the House last July. A “historic and far-reaching reform ‘, as featured on last week and step troika arrived in Greece, with a special congratulations to the government and its” partners “of (among them the majority of the GSEE) for the determination with which go to the massacre of the conquests of the working class.

    So, the Deputy Minister of Labour George Koutroumanis, speaking yesterday on SKAI said that “for supplementary pension provision is made in (SS that passed in July ) law “, adding that not” going to “give tests” in September or October on these issues.
