    [02] PM Tsipras and head of Germany DGB trade union group meet in Athens

    Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Friday had a meeting with Reiner Hoffman, the head of the German trade union confederation DGB, at the Maximos Mansion in Athens.

    According to a press release from the prime minister's press office, their meeting focused on an apparent upturn of Greece's economy, labour rights, restoring collective labour bargaining and the importance of policies boosting growth and employment.

    Tsipras highlighted the importance of restoring collective bargaining, not just for workers in Greece but within the European social model as a whole.

    Hoffman noted the efforts and progress made by Greece and the government in the last two years, while agreeing on the need to reinforce the EU's social pillar and to adopt ambitious initiatives for boosting growth on a European level.
