I gather 'Strike Day' on Kefalonia has been moved to 06 May this year. Seems to be a disagreement between Kef Labour Centre and GSEE.

PENEN, one of the Greek seafarers' unions, has called a 48 hour strike starting 06:00 on Wednesday, 10 November. May be best to check with ferry agent if planning a ferry journey on either of those days.

Not clear whether there's one strike or two, by different seafarers' unions, on the same days or different days. May be best check ahead with the ferry agents if it matters to you.

Restaurants, Cafes, Bars Closed in Greece Tuesday Due to Strike

Many restaurants, cafes, and bars will be closed across Greece on Tuesday as workers in the service industry will be on strike.

The Panhellenic Federation of Restaurant & Related Professions (POESE), a trade union that represents workers in the service and tourism industries, and other workers’ groups, have called for the 24-hour strike.

In order to visit any indoor or outdoor dining area, including cafes, restaurants, and bars, patrons must now show either proof of vaccination, recovery from the virus, or a negative test result taken within 48 hours.

Restaurant owners state that the restrictions have caused a drastic reduction in business, and have also put their workers in a risky position, as they may have to deal with unruly customers who do not wish to show the required documentation.

It is likely that Tuesday’s strike will be one of the largest in recent memory, with countless businesses taking part across the country.

New rules were introduced last Saturday in Greece to fight a spike in coronavirus infections, focusing on restricting unvaccinated people from entry into retail stores, banks, hair salons, and outdoor cafes/restaurants without tests, and doubling the requirement for weekly tests at work.

Customers must present either a full-vaccination certificate, or a certificate of having recovered from Covid within the last six months, or negative rapid/PCR test results, in order to enter stores, including malls, hair and beauty salons and wellness businesses, outdoor areas of eateries, zoos, and entertainment areas.

The exceptions to this rule include...
