  • [01] Seamen: Strike as planned

    AMNA--Ships will remain docked at ports throughout the country as of midnight Monday as the Pan-Hellenic Seamen's Federation (PNO) decided to go-ahead as planned with a 48-hour strike for Tuesday and Wednesday despite a flurry of meetings with the government over the past four days in a bid to avert the industrial action.

    The strike, which comes in the middle of the Holy Week before Orthodox Easter, will create serious problems for Easter holidaymakers planning to spend the holiday on the Greek islands, but also to tourist enterprises who were looking to the long-awaited holiday to drum up revenues in the recession-hit country.amna

    The seamen's umbrella federation PNO announced the strike next week, and several rounds of talks were held with the government, including development, competitiveness and shipping minister Anna Diamantopoulou, health minister Andreas Loverdos and labor minister George Koutroumanis, amid appeals by trade and tourism associations.
