Ferries, ships docked as Greece’s seamen go on 48h strike, Dec 10-11

Ferries and ships will remain docked as Greece’s seamen federation PNO has announced it will launch a 48-hour strike on December 10-11, 2021. The strike will affect all categories of ships.

It will start at 00:01 on Friday, December 10 and end at midnight Saturday, December 11, 2021.

According to a statement issued by the Panhellenic Seamen’s Federation (PNO), seamen demand wage increases in the collective bargaining agreements for 2020-2021 and solutions to problems relating to social insurance, pensions, education, unemployment, undeclared work and many others.

The union accuses the employer side of “stonewalling” and refusing to improve its “negative position” or offer real wage increases to seamen.

If you plan to travel by ferries or ships on these two days, contact, local port authorities and travel agents.
