Public Power Corporation (PPC) employees are to launch rolling 24-hour strikes from next Tuesday in protest at plans to sell the Independent Power Transmission Operator – known by its Greek acronym ADMIE – one of the power board’s subsidiaries.

Unionists have insisted that the action will not result in power cuts but rather in delays for repairs.

Flights arriving and departing Greece will most likely be disrupted on Thursday 30 January as air traffic controllers have announced that they will join a European air traffic strike.

Greek air traffic controllers have announced they will walk off the job between 11am and 2pm.

Also, according to reports, problems are also to be expected in some Greek regional airports on Wednesday 29 January due to a four-hour work stoppage by the Union of Air Traffic Control Safety Electronic Engineers from 10am to 2pm on both 29-30 January.

Obviously paid at a slimmed down rate.  (Think we've had this before!)

Greece's pharmacies are set to close indefinitely later this week in protest at a recent deal between the government and bailout lenders to deregulate store licenses.

Greece's largest labor union, the GSEE has called a general strike on April 9, also in opposition to the latest agreement with lenders.

The Greek Seamen's Federation (PNO) decided to go on strike as of the early hours of Thursday on ships whose owner companies owe back pay to their crews, as part of protest actions first announced last week.

According to ANA-MPA sources, the union members' strike actions will begin in the morning with ships running schedules in the Argo-Saronic Gulf while from the afternoon on they will gradually spread to scheduled runs to the Aegean Islands.

PNO has also announced two 24-hour-strikes, one that will be held on the day that a bill in connection with cruiseship regulations is tabled in Parliament, while the other is scheduled for April 9, as part of the general strike called by the GSEE union in the private sector.

Greece's largest public sector union says it will join a nationwide general strike April 9 to protest austerity measures. The move means that the walkout will affect all private and public sector services.

The ADEDY union said Thursday it was joining the strike call issued by the GSEE union a few days ago

The national seamen’s union (PNO) was expected to embark on a series of rolling 48-hour strikes on Monday in protest at government legislation that foresees labor contracts being determined through negotiations with individual companies as opposed to the union’s collective contracts agreed with ferry company owners.

After an open-ended strike by pharmacists resulted in huge lines of Greeks seeking medicines, the union representing the sector decided over the weekend to open more duty pharmacies to tackle the fallout of its own industrial action.

The Greek Pharmacists’ Association said on Saturday that additional pharmacies would open their doors and that duty pharmacies would be “reinforced” with more staff and fresh supplies “to avoid inconveniencing the public to as great a degree as possible.”

Health Minister Adonis Georgiadis lashed out at striking pharmacists over the weekend, accusing them of holding Greek citizens hostage to achieve their trade union goals.

Unionists have accused the government of overhauling the sector under pressure by the troika to serve big business interests and cartels.

Passenger ferries were docked at ports in Greece on Monday due to the start of a 48-hour strike called by the Panhellenic Seamen's Federation (PNO).

The sailors are protesting that the multi-bill passed through Parliament on Sunday allows ferry companies to offer employees in-house contracts, thereby bypassing collective bargaining with the union.

PNO is also demanding several other provisions be withdrawn. It has warned of further strikes.
