The Greek Air Traffic Controllers Association (EEEKE) and the Union of Air Traffic Safety Electronics Mechanics (ENHMAEK) will be staging job walkouts on November 25 and a natiowide strike on November 26, they announced on Friday in a joint statement.

Air traffic controllers will walk out first next Wednesday from 6 a.m. to noon, followed by the mechanics, who will walk out from noon to 6 p.m. on the same day. 

Both unions are protesting the restructuring of the country's Civil Aviation Authority under new legislation, and delayed salary payments.
