Wednesday, April 03, 2013

ISS Greece is advising that sailors associated with Greece’s Panhellenic Seamen's Union (PNO) are likely to strike 3rd April 2013.

The strike is set to commence at 06:00 local time, 3, April and last until 06:00 on 04 April. The PNO has warned that the labour action is likely to be the first in a series of strikes in the coming weeks. Merchant shipping and international and inter-island ferry transport services are therefore likely to be affected in a number of areas.

It is understood that the Piraeus towage company and their seamen (tug boats crew) will participate in the strike, which is expected to affect vessels port call operations at Piraeus, Aspropyrgos, Eleusis and Pachi during the period of the strike.
