Train employees to hold 4-hour work stoppage Thursday

Train employees will hold a four hour work stoppage on Thursday from 11.00 to 15.00 in protest to the government’s privatisation plans in the sector.

During these hours, there will be no trains on the Proastiakos suburban railway line and the Hellenic Railways (TrainOSE). Additionally, there will be no metro trains linking Doukissis Plakentias with the airport.

The work stoppage is being held to protest the privatisation of EESSTY (Hellenic Company for Rolling Stock Maintenance) that TrainOSE is interested in buying.
