Bus drivers in Thessaloniki to strike on Wednesday


There will be no buses in the port city of Thessaloniki of Wednesday as drivers walk off the job in protest at payment delays.

Workers at the OASTH transport company claim that a demand for overdue back pay has been ignored by the Finance Ministry.
