and another one on Labour Day, Monday May 1st. Greece's Pan-Hellenic Seamen’s Federation (PNO) will go on a 24-hour strike on that day. This means no movement of ferries from 0000hrs midnight until 2359hrs.

The Greek PNO seamen's group after major upheaval and reorganisation of labour contracts and social security rights say the changes are not good enough and want restoration of older agreements. They say also the changes in liberalised employment terms means shipping companies are hiring uninsured labour that has led to increased unemployment across the board in the maritime industry.

The ferry companies are offering a full refund to anyone who has booked sea travel in Greece for May 1st.

In previous strikes, ferry services have resumed pretty quickly - and so they should the ferry firms and the unions controlling the seamen have had so much practice in the past year.

Treat fairly, those who treat you fairly. To shout is a sign of weakness. Confucious may have said: "Don't be easily hurt or offended. Take a deep breath, count to 10. Log off and make a cup of tea.

for now they are over! The latest week of strikes ended a day earlier than planned (Sat Dec 10, 2016) following farmers' protests in #Crete. Severe disruption to normal transport to/from the islands and the mainland was a stranglehold on day-to-day livelihoods. Above all foodstuffs were going rotten as they could not be shipped to mainland Greece and other destinations in Europe.

I suspect the seaman will re-think their strategy of opposing changes to the welfare benefits instead of just making everyone else's life miserable along with theirs and their families.

Extra ferries are being run today, Sunday Dec 11 to cope with the backlog of traffic and goods that need to be moved.

ongoing.... the campaign is affecting #Crete. If Dec 5+6is bad enough, Dec 8 is next. if you are in Athens on that day public transport - the busses, tram and trolleys are being affected. May well be the same on the Chania and Heraklion busses in Crete. Just check it out.

set for November 24, Thursday.

If you travelling the 23rd or 25th just check that those ferries that overlap the 24th in their arrival and departure are also running.

This is a series of ongoing  24 hour rolling strikes by the national seaman's union over reorganisation by central government that impacts their social benefits and pensions.
