The 48-hour strike called on Monday by customs officers, protesting against the government decision to include them in the single wage scale for civil servants, has resulted in major traffic jams at the country’s border crossings, it was announced on Tuesday.
Trucks and other vehicles have formed a two-kilometer-long line at the border crossing of Kipi, northeast Greece, despite the fact that customs officers allow the trucks with perishable goods and private cars to cross the borders in turns.
