Greece will be without any ferry ser­vices for two days af­ter the Sea­men’s Union (PNO) called a 48-hour strike start­ing at 6 a.m. on Fri­day and end­ing Sun­day morn­ing. PNO has warned of an es­ca­la­tion of ac­tion if the gov­ern­ment does not ad­dress its con­cerns re­gard­ing planned changes to spe­cial tax reg­u­la­tions re­lat­ing to work­ers in the sec­tor. The Sea­men’s Union has al­ready planned a 24hour strike for Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 8. The um­brella union rep­re­sent­ing Greece’s pri­vate sec­tor work­ers, known by its acro­nym GSEE, has also called a 24-hour strike for De­cem­ber 8 to protest the gov­ern­ment’s on­go­ing en­force­ment of aus­ter­ity mea­sures at the be­hest of cred­i­tors and sev­eral trade unions are ex­pected to join in the ac­tion on that day.
