Air traffic is due to come to a standstill from midnight Wednesday with air traffic controllers joining a strike called by two powerful unions comprising more than one million members.
Ships will remain anchored as an influential sailors’ union is joining the protest. Buses and trams will not ply in Athens and the second city of Thessaloniki throughout the day.
