Hel­lenic Rail­ways Or­ga­ni­za­tion (OSE) and Proas­ti­akos sub­ur­ban rail­way em­ploy­ees are step­ping up their protest ac­tion against the pri­va­ti­za­tion of rail­way op­er­a­tor Trainose with daily rolling work stop­pages through Tues­day, July 12. Italy’s state rail­way com­pany Fer­rovie dello Stato is the sole bid­der to buy Trainose af­ter the dead­line for bid sub­mis­sions passed on Wed­nes­day. Apart from ex­press­ing op­po­si­tion to the gov­ern­ment’s sell-off plans, the OSE and Proas­ti­akos staff are also de­mand­ing the sign­ing of a new col­lec­tive la­bor con­tract. In a state­ment yes­ter­day, the union rep­re­sent­ing rail work­ers called on the gov­ern­ment “to do the ob­vi­ous, even at the eleventh hour” to pro­tect work­ers’ rights.
