No service on trains, electric railway and metro on Wednesday as staff strike


Employees of the Hellenic Railways Organization, the Athens metro and ISAP electric railway are holding a 24-hour strike on Wednesday as part of ongoing action against government privatization plans.

Tram staff will also stage walkouts from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and again later in the day, though unionists did not determine when.

Unionists have vowed to continue their action until the government suspends its plans for selloffs.
