Ferries and ships will stay docked at the ports on Tuesday, February 18, 2020, after the Greek Seamen Union PEPEN decided to participate in the general strike declared by public union ADEDY and several private sector unions.
PEPEN has called its members to participate in the strike in protest against the government social security bill.
“It is a new attack on our insurance and pension rights,” the union said.
Private section union umbrella GSEE has a provisional leadership and is therefore unable to declare strikes. However, many local Labor Centers have jumped in and so it looks as if unions of the public and private sector will join the strike on February 18.
+++If you plane to travel by ferries and ships on this day, please, contact local port authorities and travel agents.
