Former contract workers for the Athens municipality continued their sit-in at Athens City Hall for the sixth day on Sunday, rejecting proposals made by Athens Mayor Yiorgos Kaminis.

Kaminis visited the protestors to discuss a new set of proposals but failed to convince them to quit the premises so that the municipal council could vote on the municipality's budget on Monday.

"I made the unions a very specific proposal: we will all sit down together to discuss a regulatory framework for contract workers that we will support and promote with the government. I also asked that they hand over the city hall to the municipal authority so that we can discuss and vote on the municipality's budget in conditions of complete freedom. Unfortunately, the unions rejected my proposal. I am unable to comprehend their stance as fitting to trade union representatives" Kaminis said.
