Greece’s rail workers call off planned strikes until Thursday

Greece’s rail workers on Monday announced that they were calling off strike action announced last week for Tuesday until Thursday. The decision to suspend the strike followed a meeting with the management of Greece’s privatisation agency, the Hellenic Republic Asset Development Fund (HRADF) concerning the sale of TRAINOSE to the Italian state railway and the signing of a collective labour agreement.

Trains will be running normally throughout the rail network from Tuesday, with staff due to meet again on Friday to reconsider their stance, depending on the reply they are given by HRADF on collective agreements.
