No ferries on Labor Day as seamen take industrial action

Passenger ferries will remain tied up at Greece’s ports on Friday, May 1, preventing thousands of Labor Day travelers from reaching their destinations, as the PNO union of ferry workers on Tuesday declared it a strike day.

PNO is demanding, among other claims, that workers be paid several months of overdue salaries, and particularly at NEL lines, as well as more social security benefits, slashed as part of cost-saving efforts.
