The Greek government has secured enough parliament votes to approve the controversial package of austerity reforms.
The three-party coalition managed to secure the 151 votes needed to win approval for the deeply unpopular package, which includes further spending cuts, tax rises and labour reforms.
Negotiations in the Greek parliament ahead of a vote on budget cuts were interrupted today when parliamentary workers went on strike.
They were protesting against a clause that would have cut their salaries.
The government was forced to cancel the measure to allow the session to resume.
It also reports that the doors of the parliament building have been locked and an iron fence set up outside to protect it from the protesters.
The Financial Times (£) is reporting that forty officials have resigned en masse from the Bank of Greece because new salary caps would reduce their income by a third.
