Public transport employees are renewing mobilisations next week in protest to changes to the commuter network proposed by the government.

Public transport employees are renewing mobilisations next week in protest to changes to the commuter network proposed by the government.

The unions of Metro and Athens Electric Trains (ISAP) train drivers have called a four-hour work stoppage on Monday beginning at 12:00 noon to hold a general assembly in order to determine the further course of their mobilisations.

At the same time, bus and trolleys will not be running from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Monday due to a five-hour stoppage.

Tram employees are expected to follow in the footsteps of their bus and trolley colleagues, although no formal announcement has yet been made on their intentions.

Commuters are advised that the public transportation means will not be picking up and letting off passengers at least half an hour before and half an hour after the stoppage hours, given that time is required for drivers to deliver and pick up the vehicles before and after the stoppage.
