Com­muters stand in front of a closed sub­ur­ban rail­way sta­tion at Athens’s Eleft­he­rios Venize­los In­ter­na­tional Air­port, yes­ter­day. Em­ploy­ees of the Hel­lenic Rail­ways Or­ga­ni­za­tion (OSE), the Athens metro and ISAP rail­way held a 24hour strike yes­ter­day as part of on­go­ing ac­tion against pri­va­ti­za­tion plans by the left­ist-led coali­tion gov­ern­ment. Re­cent re­ports say that most work­ers still re­ceive their monthly salar­ies in full even when they walk off the job. Rev­enue losses for rail op­er­a­tor Train­ose have come to about 1 mil­lion euros since the be­gin­ning of the year.
