Greek Journalists, Seamen Join Strike for Delayed Labor Day

April 30, 2021

ATHENS – The annual Labor Day celebration in Greece, pushed back from May 1 to May 4 to not interfere with the Easter weekend, will see seamen and journalists joining most of the public and private sector in a strike.

Unions representing the groups, including pubic workers won't work that day, giving them four consecutive days off as May 4 comes a day after Easter which traditionally is also another day off although not a holiday.

Ferries and other ships will dock 24 hours starting on the morning of the PNO Seamen’s’ Union has said, the reason for the strike said to be wanting to protect collective labor agreements that were unspecified.

A recent Reporters Without Borders report cited what it said was a decline in media freedom in Greece and criticism the New Democracy government was trying to control the narrative by funneling money to friendly media outlets.
