Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS) advised of 48 hour strike action in Greece by the Seamen’s Union from 0600 on Thursday 31 August until 0600 on Saturday 2 February 2013.


ISS Greece has confirmed that the strike disruption means that there will be no assistance by tug boat crews with berthing and sailing movements for vessels calling at the ports of Piraeus, Aspropyrgos, Eleusis and Lavrion and pilots have also confirmed they will be joining the strike from 12.00 until 16.00 on 31st January. Vessel movements at Thessaloniki will not be affected as the local towage company will not be joining the strike.


Says Christos Makrialeas, Managing Director ISS Greece:  “This 48 hour strike by the Seamen’s Union in Greece will affect all ports and Islands as local ferries will not be operating, and at the same time all vessel movements at the ports of Piraeus, Aspropyrgos, Eleusis and Lavrion.”


ISS Greece will continue to monitor developments on behalf of ship owners and operators and will keep customers updated.
