Union calls 48-hour ferry strike over measures

Ferries will remain anchored in Greek ports on Tuesday and Wednesday, after the umbrella union representing Greek seamen, PNO, announced a 48-hour strike.

Seamen are protesting social security reforms and changes to labor market regulations that the government has promised Greece’s creditors.

In a statement, the PNO union said seamen were “uniting their voices with those of other workers around the country to cry ‘Take back the measures,’” referring to a new slew of new pension cuts and tax hikes agreed between government officials and foreign auditors last week.
