Greek seamen on Thursday decided to extend a strike that has paralysed ferry services to the Greek islands until Sunday, the Panhellenic Seamen's Federation (PNO) announced.

The union, which has been on strike since Tuesday, decided to hold another 48-hour strike starting at 18:00 on Friday and ending at 18:00 on Sunday.

The extended strike is expected to cause major problems for Greek islands that are currently cut off from the mainland, while there are already strong protests from farmers on Crete that are unable to dispatch their goods.

The PNO is pushing for the signature of collective labour agreements for its members working on ferries and freighters in the Mediterranean and Greek seas.
