Residents of Athens will experience a tough day as all public transport will be on strike. No Metro, no Urban Train-HSAP, no Tram, no Blue Buses, no Trolley, no Proastiakos, not even TRAINOSE. The 24-hour strike will take place on Thursday, September 22nd 2011. Workers at public transport means threaten to take more actions depending on the situation. Public transport workers oppose the “labour reserve” an austerity measure that will send home several thousands of public workers with 60% of their salary for 12 months. After that they most likely find themselves queueing at the unemployment office.
For those without a private car the only way to reach their work place will be with taxis. Unless, they decide to go on strike as well.
