The Panhellenic Seamen’s Union (PNO) said on Wednesday that it would join a general strike on November 27 by the country’s two main labor unions, ADEDY and GSEE, meaning that ferries will remain moored across the country on that day.

PNO objects to the government’s tax policy and is pressing for the signing of a new collective labor contract.

Meanwhile the Athens Journalists’ Union (ESIEA) called on its members to hold a three-hour walkout next Thursday and hold its own 24-hour walkout on Wednesday, meaning that no newspapers will circulate on the day of the general strike.

ESIEA is also pressing for a new collective labor contract.
