Greek Seamen’s Federation PNO decided on Monday to extend its strike for another 24 hours. Ferries remain docked and the strike will last until 6:00 a.m. on Wednesday, September 5th 2018.
The seamen did not accept the proposal by ship owners for a 2-percent wage raise.
The PNO wants a wages increase of 5 percent.
The Federation had warned it would escalate its protest actions that refer to collective bargain, labor and pensions issues.
Media do not exclude a further extension of the strike as the PNO members will meet again on Tuesday to determine their position.
The strike started at 6:00 a.m. on Monday, September 3rd 2018. The strike schedule was initially for 24 hours, that is until 6:00 a.m. Tuesday, Sept 4.
With the decision on Monday, ferries will remain docked until 6:00 a.m. Sept 5.
