A planned strike action on Metro Line 1 in Athens has been suspended due to the deadly train collision at Tempi, northern Greece, the STASY workers’ union announced on Wednesday morning.
Trains resumed their normal operation after 10.30 a.m.
“With deep sorrow in our hearts for today’s tragic accident, perhaps the greatest in the history of the Greek railway, as a sign of mourning for the national tragedy we are suspending our mobilization,” the union said, expressing condolences for the families of the victims.
Metro Lines 1 and 2 operate as usual on Wednesday as well.
Workers at the three metro lines in Athens had originally declared a work stoppage on March 1, 2023.
