Athens without subway or tram as union members plan to march

Commuters and drivers in the Greek capital are troublesome on Tuesday. There will be no subway or tram service from 9am to noon, and two protest rallies in downtown Athens will close the main road.

The three-hour transport strike is part of a broader action announced by members to coincide with a hearing at the State Council on a motion to challenge recent legislation regulating trade union operations.

The law is designed to limit union independence and their right to strike, according to union members gathering in front of a court on Panepistimiou Street at 9:30 am.

Before the rally is over, members of the Panhelenic Public Hospital Employees’ Federation (POEDIN) will meet at 11:30 am in front of the Ministry of Health near Omonia Square to march to the syntagma to vote on the bill sought by Congress. I am planning. Privatize some of Greece’s major health systems, among other provisions.
