Ferry strike announced for next Thursday


Ferries will remain docked throughout next Thursday after the Panhellenic Seamen’s Federation (PNO) said on Friday that it would be joining a general strike  called for that day by the country's two main labor unions, GSEE and ADEDY.

The PNO said it will hold a 24-hour strike on December 14, from midnight to midnight.

“Unfortunately once again the problems that the sector of seamen faces not only remain unresolved by the government but are actually growing due to the new prior actions and regulations being imposed due to the third bailout program,” the PNO said in a statement.
