Unions representing the Athens electric rail service (ISAP) announced a 24-hour strike on Friday, protesting what they claim is unfair treatment of employees due to transfers -- as anticipated by a bill restructuring state-controlled public transports.
According to union leaders, certain employees being transferred need only a few months for retirement.
Moreover, a union representing employees at the Athens Metro also announced a 24-hour strike on Friday, also in protest over the transfers' regime and the failure to sign a new collective bargaining agreement.
