Ferries and ships will remain docked on Tuesday, September 24, 2019, due to a 24-hour strike decided by the Greek Seamen and Dockworkers Federations, PNO and PENEN.
The PNO leadership decided to launch the 24-hour strike nationwide for crew of all ships categories.
Ferries and ships will remain docked from 06:00 a.m. on Tuesday, September 24 until 06:00 a.m. Wednesday, September 25, 2019.
PNO and PENEN, in fact, join the 24-hour general strike called by public sector union ADEDY on Sept 24.
Workers unions demand the withdrawal of the “development” law which among others includes also provisions that bring changes in the labor market.
One of these provisions refers to the right of strike and the electronic register for trade union members.
“Aim of the law is that the government controls employees’ unions and to undermine the workers’ right to strike,” ADEDY notes in a strike statement.
It lists the e-register for trade unions’ members, the electronic vote to strike, an overhaul of the business bargain agreement over the collective bargaining in case of financial problems of a company.
“Workers are dealt with as if they were a development problem,” ADEDY president stressed.
