Athens Metro Calls New 24h Strike



    metro-athens-300x211Athens will be without metro services throughout the day on Monday after metro workers voted to extend strike action by another 24 hours on Sunday.
    The strike, which began on Thursday, was called in protest against government plans to extend the uniform public-sector wage scale to metro staff and thus automatically abolish the previous collective labour agreement, AMNA reported.
    Moreover, ISAP electric train and tram will hold a work stoppage on Monday from 8:00-16:00.
    On Tuesday, metro, ISAP electric train and tram will hold a work stoppage from 12 noon until 4 in the afternoon.
    The Athens Metro employees union did not rule out the prospect to continue their mobilisations with more 24-hour repetitive strikes.
