PNO also sent a letter to the ministries of shipping and labour, urging them to secure the rights of active and retired Greek seamen, by agreeing to 13 issues, among which the signing of new labour agreements in ocean shipping, which is pending since 2010.

Many ferry companies announced changes in their scheduled services dur to the strike and passengers planning to travel should consult with the local tourist offices and port authorities.
