Pub­lic trans­port and air traf­fic con­trollers to join ac­tion

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

There will be no buses, trol­ley buses, trams or trains on Tues­day and Wed­nes­day, June 28 and 29, 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 on the Athens metro and the Ki­fis­sia-Pi­raeus elec­tric rail­way (ISAP) had not de­cided by last night what ac­tion, if any, they would take. Air traf­fic con­trollers de­cided on Satur­day that they would also join the strike by stag­ing two four-hour stop­pages on both days. This means they will walk off the job from 8 a.m. to noon to­mor­row and on Wed­nes­day and from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. This is ex­pected to dis­rupt dozens of flights, so pas­sen­gers are ad­vised to check with their air­lines.
