Ferries will remain docked in Greek ports due to 48-hour seafarers’ strike

Ferries will remain docked at the country’s port as the Pan-Hellenic Federation of Seafarers (PNO) of Greece announces a 48-hour strike starting on Wednesday 10 November 2021.

The two-day strike, organized by the All-Hellenic Federation of Seafarers, starts at 6:01 am on Wednesday 10 November and ends at 6:01 am on Friday 12 November.

The federation warned that the strike “could escalate”, in other words, if the union does not come to an agreement with the authorities, the strike could drag on indefinitely.

The PNO’s main demand is a new collective bargaining agreement with “substantial” wage increases, better shifts, faster pay and more hiring to compensate for unemployment in the sector.

The union also claims that attempts to stop the pandemic have resulted in measures that work against the interests of workers. Workers, members of the PNO, will gather for a protest in the port of Piraeus at 10.30 am on Wednesday.

!!! If you are planning to travel by sea by ferry or small ship on November 10-11-12, 2021, contact your local port authorities and travel agents, and if possible, return to the mainland. So that suddenly there is no problem when you get stuck on the island for a long time.
