Il­log­i­cal be­hav­ior

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The rolling strikes that we have been see­ing in re­cent weeks on fixed-line modes of trans­port in the Greek cap­i­tal might pos­si­bly be le­gal, in­so­far as the strict let­ter of the law is con­cerned, but they are un­doubt­edly abu­sive in essence. This is the case firstly be­cause union­ists and their ilk have no right to de­ter­mine which or­ga­ni­za­tion should be able to profit from the com­mer­cial ex­ploita­tion of pub­lic trans­port sta­tions and other fa­cil­i­ties man­aged by STASY, the com­pany that over­sees fixed-track modes of pub­lic trans­port in the cap­i­tal. Se­condly, a law paving the way for the com­mer­cial ex­ploita­tion of sta­tions has al­ready been ap­proved in Greece’s Par­lia­ment. But thirdly, and most sig­nif­i­cantly, the ac­tion is abu­sive be­cause cit­i­zens have to put up with an un­be­liev­able level of in­con­ve­nience due to the il­log­i­cal be­hav­ior of a small mi­nor­ity. Cit­i­zens would be jus­ti­fied in be­liev­ing that there is some­thing sus­pi­cious be­hind the re­cent protests.
