A nationwide general labor strike has been called on Wednesday by the country's two largest umbrella labor federations GSEE and ADEDY, representing the private and public sector respectively, while two protest demonstrations will be held in downtown Athens that same day, at the Pedion tou Areos Park and in Omonia Square.
Strikers on Wednesday include civil servants, public utilities and organisations (DEKO) employees, private sector employees, the mass media, doctors, state hospital employees, urban bus and trolley employees and seamen.
Buses and trolleys will not be operating on Wednesday, while the Athens and Metro will be running regularly. The ISAP urban trains will operate from 9am to 5 pm to enable strikers to take part in the demonstrations and marches in Athens, according to an ISAP employees' union announcement.
Ships will remain anchored in port throughout the country as the Panhellenic Seamen's Federation (PNO) has announced participation in Wednesday's strike.
Also, air traffic will come to a halt from 12:00 noon to 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday due to a work-stoppage by Air Traffic Controllers.
