  • [01] Seamen's strike to go ahead as planned

    AMNA--Greek seamen have decided to go ahead with a 48-hour strike planned for the middle of the Orthodox Holy Week next week, after talks with the government on Thursday were deemed "unsatisfactory" by their umbrella federation PNO on Friday, and despite appeals and pressure by tourism and market organisations.

    The Pan-Hellenic Seamen's Federation (PNO) executive committee on Monday called a 48-hour nationwide strike on April 10 and 11, and the outcome of talks with development, competitiveness and shipping minister Anna Diamantopoulou was deemed unsatisfactory during a PNO meeting on Friday.

    The strike, which comes in the middle of the Holy Week before Orthodox Easter will create serious problems for Easter holidaymakers planning to spend the holiday on the Greek islands, but also to tourist enterprises who were looking to the long-awaited holiday to drum up revenues in the recession-hit country.
