Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

There will be no ser­vice on the na­tional rail­ways and on Athens’s sub­ur­ban rail­way route (Proas­ti­akos) to­day as trans­port work­ers join a 24-hour strike called by the coun­try’s main la­bor union. There will be re­stricted ser­vices on other modes of pub­lic trans­port to al­low work­ers to at­tend anti-aus­ter­ity protests be­ing or­ga­nized in the cap­i­tal by the Gen­eral Con­fed­er­a­tion of Greek La­bor (GSEE) and the civil ser­vants’ union (ADEDY), which is join­ing GSEE’s 24-hour strike with work stop­pages. The Athens metro will not run be­fore 8 a.m. and its trains will only run to Doukissis Plak­en­tias sta­tion, not the air­port, through­out the day. Buses will only run be­tween 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. The Pi­raeus-Ki­fis­sia elec­tric rail­way (ISAP) will run be­tween 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. and trol­ley buses will run from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. The Athens tram will run be­tween 7 a.m. and 11 p.m.
