Public transport workers in Athens will participate with work stoppages in Wednesday’s 24-hour strike, called by the civil servants union federation ADEDY and the General Confederation of Employees of Greece (GSEE), the country’s largest umbrella trade union organisation representing the private sector.
The metro will not participate in the strike and will run according to schedule throughout the day. Buses will run as scheduled from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m., trolleys from 8 a.m. until 9 p.m., electric trains and the tram from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The public transport workers decided to participate in the industrial action with work stoppages in order to carry demonstrators wishing to take part in the protest rally to the centre of Athens.
Hellenic Railways (OSE) and Proastiakos trains will not run on Wednesday after a decision of the workers’ federation to participate in the 24-hour strike.
All scheduled flights from and to Greek airports will not be carried out on Wednesday after the air traffic controllers’ decision to participate in the industrial action.
