Pharmacies will reopen on Tuesday, following a strike last week that shut all but a few standbys, according to the National Pharmacists Association (PFS) on Monday, which decided to postpone its strike over the provisions of the omnibus bill voted in Parliament past midnight on Sunday.

The National Association will also participate in ADEDY's national strike on April 9.

The Panhellenic Seamen’s Union (PNO) on Tuesday called a fresh 24-hour strike, meaning that ferries will remain moored in ports for the third day in a row on Wednesday.

Unionists are to meet later in the day to decide on how to continue their protests.

Hi Maik. We are trundling through Europe by car at the moment on the way back to kef and wondered if you knew whether the seamen's strike was affecting Superfast and Kefalonia Lines? No doubt we will find out about Superfast when we get to Ancona on Friday, but not sure how to check on the Kylinni Poros route for Saturday.

Hi Alan

I heard unofficially yesterday Kefalonian Lines were hoping to run a Poros - Kyllini - Argostoli - Kyllini- Poros service around 15:00 today and I *think* it ran (around 16:00) - will  check later when I'm down in Poros port. As for Saturday and Superfast... I'll try to find out.

Good luck!

We arrived from Ancona on Monday (superfast) We have been stuck in Kyllini since Monday. We caught a ferry Dionesius Solomas from Kyllini to poros at 6.30 today. Also the Kefalonia sailed from Kyllini to Zakinthos, both ships allegedly broke the strike, good luck!

Unconfirmed but latest I've heard is that the PNO strike has been suspended until 09/04/14 when they will hold a 24-hour strike. I'll post a link when I find confirmation.

Thanks for that Maik, it sounds like we may strike lucky after all (no pun intended). Two days in Kylinni can't be much fun.

Greece's public hospital employees have decided to go on strike over the huge staff shortages and lack of materials.

The federation has also called its members to gather outside the Health Ministry before attending the 24-hour joint Gsee and Adedy strike on Wednesday. On Friday the 11th of April there will be a five-hour walkout and a demonstration outside the Health Ministry and regional healthcare services at noon. A major wave of protest action in the healthcare sector will begin on the 28th of April with a 24-hour strike.

The federation has complained about serious staff shortages, as about 15,000 employees have retired and their positions still remain vacant.

Stevedores across the country walked off the job until 11 a.m. on Monday in a protest against the planned privatization of Thessaloniki port.

A 24-hour strike has been called for Tuesday, when Parliament will debate the relevant legislation.

The port workers will also take part in Wednesday’s general strike.

The Panhellenic Seamen’s Union (PNO) said on Wednesday that ferry schedules would return to normal from Thursday as it will not continue its action following a series of rolling strikes.

The union indicated that there would be no more walkouts ahead of Orthodox Easter, which falls on April 20, but did not rule out a resumption of action after the holidays.

The union representing staff at the Civil Aviation Authority on Wednesday announced a “warning” strike for Monday, June 30, and Tuesday, July 1, to press their demand for more state funding.

The 48-hour stoppage will not be joined by air-traffic controllers, which means that major flight disruptions are not expected as the tourism season enters its busy period.

Authorities, however, did say that travelers should brace themselves for some delays.

The union representing employees of the Civil Aviation Authority on Saturday said that it will be calling off a strike scheduled for Monday and Tuesday after an appeal by tourism professionals to Prime Minister Antonis Samaras to avert any action that may hurt arrivals.

The strike was not expected to lead to any flight cancellations as it did not include air traffic controllers but it was still expected to cause delays and general upheaval.

ATHENS, July 1 (Reuters) - Workers at Greece's state-controlled power utility PPC will stage a series of strikes from Wednesday, in the midst of the summer tourism season, to protest government plans to privatise the firm, their union leader said.

Greece is beginning to emerge from a six-year recession and has pinned its hopes on record tourism arrivals this year to help boost its economy. The government has suggested it may force people on strike back to work if power supplies are disrupted.

Stamatis Relias, the head of PPC's biggest trade union GENOP-DEH, told Reuters that the union planned to launch 48-hour rolling strikes starting on Wednesday.

A PPC executive, who spoke on condition on anonymity, said industrial action was not expected to disrupt power supply as there was enough production capacity to cover demand.

Most parts of the country are expected to be without power at various points during the day on Thursday as Public Power Corporation (PPC) workers begin rolling strikes in protest at the government’s privatization plans, which Prime Minister Antonis Samaras insisted he has no intention of abandoning.
