No ferries as Greek seamen launch third day of action

The Panhellenic Seamen’s Union (PNO) on Tuesday called a fresh 24-hour strike, meaning that ferries will remain moored in ports for the third day in a row on Wednesday.

The seamen are to march to the Merchant Marine Ministry at 8.30 a.m. in an ongoing protest against changes to their collective contract agreements that were part of a multi-bill voted through Parliament late on Sunday.

Unionists are to meet later in the day to decide on how to continue their protests.
