No public transport, rallies as workers protest multi-bill

Commuters in the capital are set for another day of frustration on Monday as public transport workers walk off the job in protest at the government’s multi-bill of austerity measures and reforms which is to be voted on in Parliament later in the day.

There will be no services on the Athens metro, the Piraeus-Kifissia electric railway (ISAP), trolley buses, city buses or the tram.

Some flight disruptions are expected too as air traffic controllers hold a work stoppage from noon to 3 p.m.

Last week, the president of the metro workers’ union (SELMA), Spyros Revythis, indicated that more transport strikes might be on the cards.

“We will meet on Wednesday with a proposal to continue and let’s see if the government jails us,” he said.
