Planned Work Stoppage on Athens Metro Postponed

ATHENS — The Athens metro will be operating normally on Wednesday after the metro staff union decided to postpone planned strike action on all three metro lines. The management of trains operator STASY had resorted to the courts on Wednesday asking that the strike action called by the drivers' union for 21:00 on Wednesday be declared illegal and abusive but the work stoppage was called off before the court issued its ruling.

The union said it decided to call of the strike to give management a chance to address the problems raised by train drivers and other company employees. According to a recent union announcement, the drivers called the strike because they are forced to drive trains where the air conditioning in the driver's car is not functioning, while they are also forced to work on their days off without days of rest in order for the schedule to run on time.


ATHENS — Greek authorities say another sailboat carrying dozens of migrants arrived Thursday at Kythera, the third in just under two days to make it to the southern island that isn't on the usual route for asylum-seekers trying to reach the European Union.
