Greece’s air traffic controllers announced that they will join the 24-hour strike on Thursday, March 16. 2023. According to an announcement by their union EEEKE the strike begins at 00:01 Thursday and ends at 24:00 on the same day.
Like other unions in the transport sector, air traffic controllers had launched strikes in the past pointing out at staff shortage. However, they had to cancel them as the courts ruled they were “illegal.”
The 24-hour strike has been launched by public and private sector unions ADEDY and GSEE demanding justice for the victims of the train collision, no cover-up and safe transport.
KTG will keep you updated about other transport unions joining the strike as soon as the information is available.
