Greece: rail strike: today as promised, but Wednesday’s (Jun 22) postponed

Workers on Greece’s national railway and Proastiakos suburban railway decided on Tuesday to postpone a 24-hour strike scheduled for the following day.


The union representing railway workers said that it decided to put off its action after it was informed of a hold in plans to put the company up for sale.


Tuesday’s stoppages, however, continue as planned, with workers walking off the job in the morning and then again from 1-4 p.m. and from 9 p.m. to midnight.


The action is affecting the connection between the metro and Athens airport, so travelers are advised to use the airport bus service instead.
