Greek air traffic controllers plan two-day strike

Greek air traffic controllers are to walk off the job for two days (April 22 and April 23) next week to protest against government cutbacks and an overhaul of civil aviation services, their union said on Thursday.
Day one of the strike on Thursday will coincide with a national work stoppage by civil servants against austerity measures sought by the Greek government in the face of a staggering debt crisis, the EEEKE union said.
The second day will target a reorganisation of civil aviation services which, according to the union, “will not create the appropriate framework for a viable development” of air traffic services, it said in a statement.
Any walkout by air traffic controllers would automatically trigger a shutdown of Greek airports, observers said.
State authorities have not yet notified Athens International Airport, Greece’s largest, of the planned strike next week, an unidentified airport spokeswoman said by telephone today.
