Passenger train stoppages suspended in view of Easter travel

Workers at Greece’s national railway service, Trainose, on Monday suspended two three-hour stoppages that would have affected passenger train schedules Tuesday and Wednesday with the aim of facilitating Easter holiday travel.

However, 24-hour rolling strikes by employees in cargo services were expected to continue throughout Holy Week until Easter Sunday, while all of the company’s services are set to come to a halt on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, due to three 24-hour rolling strikes called by unions.

The workers are demanding a new collective labor agreement while also opposing government plans for the company’s privatization. In the meantime, union representatives were seeking a meeting with Transport Minister Michalis Chrysochoidis.
