Electric railway, metro workers call four-hour stoppage

Workers on the ISAP electric urban railway and the Athens metro have called a four-hour stoppage for Wednesday, September 7, in protest at government plans to streamline their sector.

The two public transportation networks will be closed from noon to 4 p.m., following a 24-hour strike last week.

Union representatives will be meeting during the hiatus to discuss their next moves, which may include teaming up with taxi drivers in strike action.
