Strike to cause transport disruption on Tuesday

A 24-hour strike over wages and labor rights organized by the Athens Labor Center (EKA) and the Confederation of Greek Labor (GSEE) will lead to transport disruption in the capital on Tuesday.

There will be no metro while other services will be restricted. The Piraeus-Kifissia electric railway (ISAP) will only run between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m., buses will operate between 7.30 a.m. to 10 p.m. trolley buses from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. and the tram from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. The Proastiakos suburban railway will also run a restricted service.

Two protest rallies are planned for central Athens at 11 a.m. — one at Klafthmonos Square and the other at Omonia Square.

Ferry services are also likely to be disrupted as seamen?s unions have said they will walk off the job. Hospital doctors, lawyers and journalists who today launch a 48-hour strike.
