This will be followed by a four-hour work stoppage by all means of public transport on Tuesday, between the hours of noon and 4:00 p.m. and a further 24-hour strike by all means of public transport on Wednesday.

For Thursday there is a decision by Athens buses to only run between 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. but decisions by other groups of public transport workers are still pending.
