Seamen’s union calls 2-day strike for Easter Week

The union representing the country?s seamen has called a two-day strike for next Tuesday and Wednesday, a move that is likely to cause problems for thousands of Greeks planning to travel to islands ahead of Orthodox Easter on Sunday, April 15.

The Panhellenic Seamen?s Union (PNO), which has held several walkouts in recent months, is protesting the government?s plans to merge its health service provider with the state?s main healthcare provider (EOPYY).
