The Hellenic Petroleum (ELPE) workers strike has been suspended, according to a decision by the workers' union taken unanimously on Tuesday evening.

"The Labour Contract determining the remuneration and labour terms continues to apply as it has been agreed. The government's omnibus bill excludes ELPE," the union said. "Before the development of the change of the bill, the Union in an extraordinary session decided unanimously this afternoon 11/10/11 the suspension of the strike."
