After hours of deliberation Greek municipal workers have decided to suspend the strike that has crippled the Greek capital for more than a week. The municipal workers union (POE-OTA) which represents the garbage collectors has decided to end the strike and start immediately collecting the garbage.

Earlier, hundreds of contractors demonstrated outside the Greek parliament

The decision to suspend the strike will come as a relief to Athenians that had to endure a city covered in piles of garbage for a second consecutive week.

Emergency municipal crews have been picking up trash as high temperatures contribute to the decomposition of waste, posing serious health threats for citizens.
