Seamen to join May 8 walkout by GSEE


The Panhellenic Seamen’s Federation (PNO) said Tuesday that its members will join a 24-hour strike that the private sector workers’ union, GSEE, has called for May 8, in protest at planned reforms to the pension system.

The walkout, which will leave ferries moored in ports across the country, is in addition to the 48-hour strike the PNO has already said it will hold when the government’s pension reform bill goes to Parliament’s plenary session for a debate and vote.
