    Transport and Communications Minister Costis Hatzidakis on Thursday attributed to main opposition Panhellenic Socialist Movement (PASOK) "embarrassment and a dogmatic fixation in the maintenance of the sick situation at Olympic Airlines."

    In statements he made in the afternoon, Hatzidakis announced that he had already sent a letter to the trade unions of Olympic Airlines, calling on them to have a discussion with him. He will also send a personal letter to all the employees, in order to brief them on the package of labor measures, in accordance with the categories of the individual employees. In reply to reporters' questions, the transport minister reiterated that the measures he announced will soon officially be measures of the state.
