The wave of strikes in the Athens public transport against government reforms that include wage cuts and forced staff transfers will resume after the Christmas holidays. Trade unionists announced this on Saturday.
Bus drivers and staff are planning further work stoppages next Wednesday, from the start of their shift until 8:00 a.m. and from 10:00 p.m. until the end of the shift. This means buses will be running between 8:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. on that day.
Similar work stoppages held at different hours are also planned after the New Year on January 3rd, 5th and 10th.
No announcements concerning planned strikes have yet been made by unions for other forms of public transport in the capital.
