Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

There will be no ferry ser­vices on Novem­ber 2 and 3 af­ter the Pan­hel­lenic Sea­men’s Union (PNO) called a 48-hour strike to protest a new wave of aus­ter­ity mea­sures in­clud­ing new cuts to pen­sions. De­scrib­ing the two-day walk­out as a “warn­ing” to author­i­ties, who are cur­rently dis­cussing more mea­sures with rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Greece’s for­eign cred­i­tors, PNO said it would also join a 24-hour gen­eral strike called by the coun­try’s two main unions, the ADEDY civil ser­vants’ union and the GSEE pri­vate sec­tors’ union, for Novem­ber 12. “The new avalanche of mea­sures and poli­cies that are a bur­den on the peo­ple do not al­low any other choice,” PNO said in a state­ment.
