Unions Call General Strike for Wednesday



The Panhellenic Seamen’s Union (PNO) will join the general strike called for September 26, which means there will be no ferries or hydrofoils to or from Piraeus on Wednesday.
The strike has been called by the civil service union ADEDY and the General Confederation of Greek Workers (GSEE), Greece’s largest labor umbrella. A number of unions have said they will join the strike, so it’s best to reconfirm travel and other plans. Trains service nationally as well as bus and trolley service in Athens will also be affected.
Customs officials walk out on a 3-day strike on Wednesday, while tax offices and finance ministry staff go out on a 48-hour strike on Thursday. Judges, court officials, and pharmacists are also continuing their strikes.
The journalists’ union ESHEA has called a 24-hour strike starting at 6 a.m. today in support of Wednesday’s general strike.
