The Federation of Hellenic Civil Aviation Employees’ Unions OSYPA announced a 48-hour strike next Monday and Tuesday, that will cause delays or cancellation of flights. The Union accuses both the previous and the present Greek government of disrespect towards the rights of employees in all aviation sectors and airports and warn that it could possibly lead to their collapse.
OSYPA stated that the Civil Aviation Service needs direct funds to maintain and upgrade airport facilities, that have been neglected due to lack of funding.
During the 48-hour strike OSYPA will serve only for the following flights:
– Civil and military airplanes that fly over and cross Athens-Macedonia Flight Information Regions (FIR)
– Hospital flights
– Flights where Prime Ministers/ Heads of State are boarded
– Emergency case flights
