Staff walkout over growth bill to cause transport disruption Tuesday

There will be no services on the Kifissia-Piraeus urban electric railway ISAP (Metro Line 1) or on the capital's buses or trolley buses on Tuesday, as staff are to join a 24-hour strike in protest at the provisions of the government's growth bill.

Workers on the Athens metro - lines 2 and 3 - will run a restricted service from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. with the tram running from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Ferries will be moored in ports around the country on the same day - from 6 a.m. on Tuesday until 6 a.m. on Wednesday - as seamen also protest the reforms which they believe will compromise workers' rights.
