48 hour strike in Greece – Seamen’s Union

Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS) is advising of a 48 hour strike by the Seamens Union in Greece from 2-4 December.

The strike is due to affect all domestic and local ferry routes to and from Piraeus to the Greek Islands. Earlier, the Crew Union of the Tug boats also confirmed participation in the strike and operations will be affected at the ports of Piraeus, Aspropyrgos, Eleusis and Pachi/Megara.

During the strike period, vessels will not be able to berth, shift or sail from the affected ports. The action has again been called by the union in response to the Governments planned changes to labour and insurance rights, pensions and retirement ages.

The strike will start at 06:00 local time on 2 December and is expected to finish at 06:00hrs on 4 December.

ISS Greece is working with its clients to minimise delays and will keep its clients updated.
