MEMBERS of the Greek Communist labour union have clashed with riot police during a protest over the right to strike and workplace reform.

A new agreement between the SYRIZA-led government and bail-out creditors includes a clause making it more difficult for unions members to withdraw their labour.

The proposals sparked outrage among workers’ groups and opposition parties who demanded the withdrawal of the amendment just hours after they were tabled in parliament.

Furious crowds of demonstrators then forced their way into the Greek Labour Ministry buildiing in central Athens and clashed with riot police outside Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’s office.
