In a state­ment is­sued ear­lier this week, the Pan­hel­lenic Sea­men’s Fed­er­a­tion (PNO) con­demned the “de­mo­li­tion” of its mem­bers’ pen­sion fund, the “triv­i­al­iza­tion” of pen­sions, the re­duc­tion of aux­il­iary pen­sions, the in­crease in unin­sured work and the vi­o­la­tion of la­bor rights. The strike is sched­uled to be­gin at 12.01 a.m. to­day.
