Hundreds of jobless civil servants on Friday protested in Athens as the government met with EU-IMF creditors to finalise a new round of some 11,500 public sector layoffs.
Teachers, school wardens and cleaners demonstrated outside the ministries of finance and public administration.
Greece has to fire some 11,500 civil servants this year under the terms of its EU-IMF bailout.
In 2013 it axed 3,500 state jobs and redeployed over 20,000 public sector workers, officials said.
