  • [01] Coalition gov't leaders' meeting on Tuesday

    AMNA--Prime Minister Antonis Samaras will meet on Tuesday afternoon with PASOK leader Evangelos Venizelos and Democratic Left leader Fotis Kouvelis, who participate in his three-party coalition government.

    The leaders' meeting is expected to focus on the next steps for growth, an issue that will possibly be a turning point for an updated programme agreement of the three partners.

    The meeting will be held at the Maximos mansion (government headquarters).

    [02] Mass transit stoppages, strike on Wednesday and Thursday

    AMNA--Public transport will come to a standstill in Athens on Thursday as mass transit employees will stage a 24-hour strike in protest of their imminent incorporation into the single wage scale.

    The Athens metro, ISAP electric train and tram will not operate on Thursday due to the strike, while on Wednesday they will hold a work stoppage from the beginning of the morning shift to 9:00 a.m.

    The Hellenic Railway (OSE) and Proastiakos suburban railway will also come to a standstill on Wednesday and Thursday, due to a 48-hour strike called by their employees.amna

    The employees say that several restructurings in urban transport has had a toll of up to 48 percent of their revenues, and in the event that they are fully incorporated into the single salary scale, they will suffer further cuts.
