The Panhellenic Seamen's Federation (PNO) is planning to hold a nationwide 24-hour strike on Monday, September 3. If the strike is held, ferry services across Greece will be suspended. Ferry companies have called for the PNO to call off the strike, saying that almost 200,000 travelers will be affected.


PNO leaders are demanding salary increases and tax breaks for ferry workers. According to the union, it decided to hold the strike after the Greek Shipowners Association for Passenger Ships (SEEN) failed to renew the seaman’s collective labor agreement for 2018 in late August.


Travelers in Greece are advised to monitor the situation, prepare for limited ferry services, and to make other travel arrangements if necessary.
