Greek Sailors Call Four-day Strike on May 6-10

The Pan-Hellenic Seamen’s Federation (PNO) introduced on Thursday that it’s going to maintain a four-day strike in Greece in all ship classes ranging from 6 am on Friday, Might 6, till 6 am on Tuesday, Might 10.

The federation is holding the strike in protest of the federal government’s pension reform plans.

The controversy of the draft regulation on pension and tax reforms will start in parliament on Saturday morning and finish with a vote on Sunday night time.

In line with info from transport corporations, the strike will end result within the cancellation of all scheduled ferry routes from the ports of Athens and Attica (Piraeus, Rafina, Lavrio). Many routes between the islands are anticipated to function usually. Coastal transport corporations advise passengers, travelling between the islands or to Athens, to contact their native port brokers for additional info.
