Athens metro workers call 24-hour strike on Thursday


There will be no metro service in the Greek capital on Thursday, as workers walk off the job for 24 hours.

The strike has been organized by the SELMA union to protest government plans to include STASY, the company that operates the metro, into the state’s asset privatization fund.

In an announcement on Wednesday, SELMA said that the move has thrown the metro into “chaos,” which affects workers but also hundreds of thousands of commuters.
