Apparently PNO will join the strike on 09 November. Quite possible ADEDY and other unions will join in.

Nationwide strike in Greece on November 9th over rising prices

Greece will come to a standstill on Wednesday, November 9, as a nationwide strike has been declared by workers’ unions. There will be work stoppages in the means of public transport as the employees will also be taking part in the 24-hour strike announced by the General Confederation of Greek Workers (GSEE), the Civil Servants’ Confederation (ADEDY), and the All-Workers Militant Front (PAME).

The workers are demanding the Greek government implement support measures to deal with the rapid rise in the cost of living.

The ships will remain docked in the ports of the whole country as the management of the Panhellenic Seamen’s Federation (PNO) decided to participate in the 24-hour strike of the GSEE. The strike concerns all categories of ships and is nationwide.

May be best to check ahead if you're planning to cross to/from the mainland this Wednesday, 08/03/23, as it looks as though all seafarers' unions will be joining in with what looks to be developing into a general strike as people grieve over the Tempe rail disaster.

Widespread strikes on Wednesday

The Greek Civil Servants’ Confederation (ADEDY) announced a 24-hour nationwide strike in the public sector on Wednesday, March 8.

In the same vein, the Panhellenic Seamen’s Federation (PNO) announced a 24hr strike that will keep all ships docked nationwide on March 8. PNO also demanded that light be shed on all aspects of the collision of the two trains, and that all relevant measures be taken for safe land and sea transportation.

The Greek Primary Teachers’ Federation (DOE) also announced that they would be joining ADEDY’s nationwide strike on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, the railworkers’ union on Monday announced that they are extending their nationwide strike mobilization through Wednesday. Railway services have been suspended since last Wednesday, following Tuesday night’s collision of a passenger train with a freight train that has so far claimed the lives of 57 people. Railway workers’ unions said that “we are fighting for the safe running of trains, but also for the truth to shine and for the culprits of the tragic train accident to be found, regardless of how high up they are.”
