Com­muters face more woes to­day and Fri­day

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Athens com­muters are set for fresh travel dis­rup­tions to­day and Fri­day due to two planned 24-hour strikes by work­ers on the Athens metro, tram and the Pi­raeus-Ki­fis­sia elec­tric rail­way (ISAP). The strikes will mean ser­vices on the metro, tram and ISAP are to­tally sus­pended to­day and Fri­day, al­though they will op­er­ate nor­mally to­mor­row. Work­ers are protest­ing new leg­is­la­tion that will al­low the Athens Pub­lic Trans­port Or­ga­ni­za­tion (OASA) to make com­mer­cial use of sta­tions and ar­eas be­long­ing to STASY, the op­er­a­tor of the cap­i­tal’s fixed-track pub­lic trans­port sys­tem. Union­ists have de­manded the im­me­di­ate with­drawal of the leg­is­la­tion, which they said will re­duce STASY’s rev­enues and threaten the “pub­lic and so­cial char­ac­ter” of pub­lic trans­port.
