Cap­i­tal’s com­muters face an­other day of angst

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Trans­port work­ers in Athens are to walk off the job for the sec­ond time this week to­mor­row in an on­go­ing protest against leg­is­la­tion that will pave the way for the com­mer­cial use of sta­tions. Work­ers on the Athens metro, the tram and the Ki­fis­si­aPi­raeus ur­ban elec­tric rail­way (ISAP) and are to take part in the walk­out, likely lead­ing to traf­fic con­ges­tion in the Greek cap­i­tal, as was the case dur­ing yes­ter­day’s strike. Work­ers’ unions ar­gue that the changes be­ing pro­posed will strip the metro or­ga­ni­za­tion of funds and un­der­mine its pub­lic char­ac­ter.
