24-Hour Seamen’s Strike Halts Greek Ferries Tomorrow

    by -

    Domestic ferry services from Greece’s main port of Piraeus will be shut down tomorrow.  Seamen will hold a 24-hour strike as they seek to negotiate a new collective bargaining agreement.
    The Pan-Hellenic Seamen’s Federation will begin the strike at 6 a.m., disrupting ferry services to Greek islands. Ferries from Greece to Italy will not be affected by the strike, according to a statement on the federation’s website.
