Unions representing Athens public transport workers on Tuesday decided to suspend a 24-hour strike, with press reports pointing to a tougher stance adopted by the transport ministry, which notified company managements to file legal action against the industrial actions as "illegal and abusive".

Unions representing Athens public transport workers on Tuesday decided to suspend a 24-hour strike, with press reports pointing to a tougher stance adopted by the transport ministry, which notified company managements to file legal action against the industrial actions as "illegal and abusive".

A court ruling on the lawsuits filed by the metro, electric railway (ISAP) and tram managements is expected later in the afternoon on Tuesday.

ISAP electric rail workers decided to suspend a 24-hour strike announced for Wednesday and instead will hold a four-hour work stoppage between noon and 4 p.m. Buses will also participate in the work stoppage, while trolley buses and the Proastiakos suburban railway will run as scheduled.

In a later decision, train drivers for the all-important Athens metro have decided to hold a work stoppage between noon and 4 p.m.
