Air traffic controllers to hold walkout Aug 5

eKathimerini — The union representing Greece’s air traffic controllers Thursday announced a four-hour walkout on Wednesday, August 5, and warned of further action unless a bill foreseeing the adoption of European Union regulations governing working conditions, labor rights and administrative issues is submitted in Parliament.

According to the union, an administrative overhaul is required without delay otherwise the country’s civil aviation authority will be at risk of being “downgraded.” It warned of repercussions for labor rights but also operational and national issues.
