Railway Workers to Hold Work Stoppage April 26

April 20, 2018

Greek railway workers will hold a four-hour work stoppage on Thursday April 26 in opposition to a privatisation being pushed ahead by the government.

Workers will walk off the job at 11 am, pulling the brake on the suburban railway and OSE trains. Trains travelling from Doukissis Plakentias metro station to the airport will also be affected.

April 26 is the deadline for investors to submit an improved bid for the sale of EESSTY (Hellenic Company for Rolling Stock Maintenance) to Greece’s Hellenic Republic Asset Development Fund (HRADF).


ATHENS - Deeming it unsafe because of the risk of landslides, Greece will not allow  anyone on Navagio Beach on Zakynthos, where cliffs as high as 200 meters (656 feet) surround the horseshoe-shaped spot that holds a shipwreck.
