Seamen’s union warn of strike action 30 June

Greece’s passenger ferry service is expected to be disrupted on Tuesday, June 30, as the Pan-Hellenic Seamen’s Federation (PNO) has announced a 24-hour strike.

Among other claims, the Greek seamen are demanding unpaid wages from certain shipping firms and are protesting against uninsured labour and increased unemployment in their sector which they said has surpassed 50 percent.

In its announcement, PNO also referred to an upcoming “avalanche” of anti-worker measures that have been demanded by Greece’s creditors.

If  the strike goes ahead, it  is likely to affect domestic routes only.

If you are planning to travel by ferry on 30 June please contact the offices of the shipping line for more information
