The Hellenic Civic Aviation Authority Employees announced a 48-hour strike set to take place on Sunday, May 31st and Monday, June 1st. The authority employees stated that no Greek government has shown the required respect to HCAA employees whether their work in navigation or in airports around the country.
HCAA airport employees are demanding direct financing for airport infrastructure projects and maintenance across the country, as well as a feasible plan for the implementation of these projects.
They are also demanding the immediate staffing of HCAA, which has been operating with less than the minimum required staff and the employee’s direct payment in regards to accrued fees, some of which are due since the spring of 2014.
The 48-hour strike is expected to affect plans of vacation-goers, as it coincides with a long weekend in Greece due to the Holy Spirit Holiday.
