No metro in Greek capital on Tuesday morning

TAGS: Transport, Strike

Workers on the Athens metro will be holding a work stoppage on Tuesday morning, which means there will be no service until after 9 a.m.

The walkout, which is designed to protest plans for the company’s privatization, will affect the metro’s lines 2 and 3, including service to Athens International Airport. It will not, however, affect line 1 of the ISAP electric railway.

Workers at the metro operating firm STASY have said they will increase their protest action if plans for the company’s sale are not scrapped.
