IMGP7665The Panhellenic Seamen’s Union (PNO) voted to extend its strike another 48-hours after talks at the Merchant Marine Ministry on Friday failed to reach an agreement on a range of issues raised by the union.
The strike ends at 6 a.m. on Monday, however media sources did not rule out the prospect of protracted labor action by the union.
The seamen’s demands include withdrawal of proposed legislation restructuring the Merchant Marine Ministry and the signing of collective wage agreements for all ship categories.
