Rail work­ers to con­tinue stop­pages un­til Fri­day

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Work­ers on the OSE na­tional and Proas­ti­akos suburban rail­ways will con­tinue work stop­pages through to­mor­row, their union said yes­ter­day. Work­ers are protest­ing the gov­ern­ment’s plan to pri­va­tize Tain­ose, the com­pany that op­er­ates all pas­sen­ger and freight trains on OSE lines. Freight trains will be im­mo­bi­lized un­til Sun­day. They are also call­ing on the gov­ern­ment to rein­tro­duce a col­lec­tive la­bor con­tract for all rail work­ers. Dis­grun­tled rail­way staff have been stag­ing strikes and walk­outs over the past cou­ple of months to protest the pri­va­ti­za­tion, which so far has at­tracted just one bid­der.
