PNO: No Ferries in Greece on June 30 Due to Strike

UPDATE: Greek Seamen Call Off 24-hour Strike Planned for June 30

piraeus_ferries_1Greece’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 in protest of some shipping firms violating their collective labor contracts.

Among other claims, the Greek seamen are demanding unpaid wages from certain shipping firms and are protesting against uninsured labor 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.
