Dockers strike in Athens and Thessaloniki


Dockers in Athens and Thessaloniki will be on strike on Tuesday and Wednesday to protest plans to sell the majority stakes in the two respective port authorities, OLP and OLTH, to private investors.

The stevedores’ strike may lead to problems with the unloading of cargo ships.

Also, workers are also planning to picket the entrances to the ports between 7 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Tuesday.

They are due to hold a demonstration in Klafthmonos Square, central Athens, at 11.30 a.m. on Wednesday.

They plan to march toward Parliament afterward.
