Commuters in Greek capital Athens will face troubles on Thursday, due to the 24-hour strike called by several unions, as transport workers will also join the protest against the Labor Bill with strike and wort stoppages.
One of the problems is that a court in Athens declared as “illegal” the strike announced by the Metro workers and yet some unions seem to proceed despite the court ruling.
Court decisions are still pending for some transportation unions.
