There will be no buses or trains on Tues­day and Wed­nes­day as a re­sult of the 48-hour strike called by unions to co­in­cide with the par­lia­men­tary de­bate and vote on the gov­ern­ment’s lat­est aus­ter­ity pack­age. Work­ers at the Hel­lenic Rail­ways Or­ga­ni­za­tion (OSE) and the ETHEL bus com­pany said yes­ter­day that they would take part in the strike. As a re­sult, there will be no in­ter­city trains or Proas­ti­akos sub­ur­ban rail­way ser­vices and the metro will not run to Athens In­ter­na­tional Air­port, stop­ping in­stead at Doukissis Plak­en­tias sta­tion, be­cause OSE man­ages the re­main­der of the line. Buses will also be off the road, apart from a lim­ited ser­vice for peo­ple tak­ing part in or at­tend­ing the Spe­cial Olympics. ETHEL union­ists said they would keep some buses run­ning just for this pur­pose. Work­ers on other modes of pub­lic trans­port had yet to de­cide what ac­tion they will take. Air­traf­fic con­trollers are due to meet to­day.
