Unionists have vowed to stop the pension reform, a key condition in a financial rescue plan for Greece agreed last week with the euro zone and the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

The country’s socialist government unveiled a draft law on Monday that raises the average retirement age and pares back benefits to plug the pension system’s ballooning deficits.
