An increase in the number of flights arriving in and departing from Greece is putting local air-traffic controllers under too much stress, their union said on Wednesday as it announced plans to launch protest action next month.

If they can't handle stress then they are in the wrong job and I certainly don't want them on the job when they are looking after my flight.

All the bleeding-heart animal lovers might protest at the plight of brick kiln donkeys in Nepal but, obviously, it's not the fault of the owners - it's just a damn lazy donkey who needs a good whipping to get it back to work.

Look on the bright side, BeeTee - ATC staff might not be on the job the day you fly ;)

The walkout is to begin on Friday at 11 a.m.

Greek air traffic controllers are set to go on strike this coming weekend (October 4 and 5) in protest at the use of airport charges.

It remains to be seen if the strike will be allowed to go ahead as courts often prevent air traffic controllers from walking off the job due to safety reasons.

An Athens court on Thursday ruled that a strike called by Greek air traffic controllers this weekend, October 4 and 5, was illegal. As a result of the court’s decision, air travel was expected to run smoothly across the country on those days.

Just think if you'd been left with some holiday stragglers!  I can imagine you stuffing them in the airport and locking the doors  ;)

Being that more people will be leaving than arriving I figured the strike would be deemed legal so as to seriously delay departure and thus wring the very last drachmas out of departing tourists  :dunno:

Air-traffic controllers have called a four-hour work stoppage from 9 a.m. on Thursday.

Courts often block action by air-traffic controllers.

The country's umbrella union representing workers in the private sector, known by its Greek acronym GSEE, on Friday called a 24-hour strike for November 27 to protest austerity measures being enforced as part of Greece's loan agreement with international creditors.

The civil servants' union, ADEDY, is also planning protest action for next month.

Greece: no ship, ferry services tomorrow in 24-hour strike

ATHENS, NOVEMBER 5 - Ships and ferries will not be operating tomorrow in Greece due to a 24-hour strike called by the National federation of port employees (Omyle) to protest against the government's planned privatization of ports.

Not sure this will affect local ferries, e.g. Kef-Kyllini, might be worth checking if you plan a ferry journey tomorrow.

Yes, local services don't seem too affected by 'national' strikes, especially when it's port workers on strike rather than ferry crew. Possible the wind could affect services today so, for anyone planning a ferry crossing to/from the mainland, still a good idea to check ahead.

The Panhellenic Seamen’s Union (PNO) said on Wednesday that it would join a general strike on November 27 by the country’s two main labor unions, ADEDY and GSEE, meaning that ferries will remain moored across the country on that day.

Meanwhile the Athens Journalists’ Union (ESIEA) called on its members to hold a three-hour walkout next Thursday and hold its own 24-hour walkout on Wednesday, meaning that no newspapers will circulate on the day of the general strike.
