Trains and the suburban railway will halt services from Orthodox Holy Saturday afternoon until Easter Monday morning, following a strike called by employees in the Railway Organization of Greece (OSE).

According to a press release, employees are demanding that the government drops its plan to privatize railway network operator TRAINOSE and hires more train drivers.

The strike will take effect at 18.00 on Saturday (April 30) and will end at 10.00 on Monday (May 2). Metro services to and from the airport will not be affected by the strike.
