Athens Metro strike scheduled for December 8-9th 2011 has been cancelled!
Workers at Athens Metro will be on two 24-hour strike from Thursday, December 8th at 5 am until Saturday, December 10th, 2011 at 5 am. The Metro workers launch their strike to protest the attack against their union president last Tuesday.
The president of the Athens Metro union and one more member were taken to hospital in Athens on Tuesday, after a dispute with their colleagues from the Urban Train HSAP. The Metro-unionists claimed the HSAP-union chief and some members attacked them with pepper spray.
The incident occurred at a meeting between several unions of workers at the Public Transport on rails. Some unions agreed on an upcoming strike, others disagree and at the end, two unionists went to the hospital.
