Unions representing public transport workers in Greece has called for protests and strikes between Tuesday, September 24, and Thursday, September 26. In Athens, a 24-hour public transport strike including bus, train, and subway services, is due to begin at 11:00 (local time) on Tuesday. A countrywide 24-hour ferry and ship strike is also scheduled to start at 06:00 on Tuesday. Several protests are due to take place on the same day including at 10:30 in Propylaea and at 11:00 in Klathmonos Square.
The Pan-Hellenic Federation of Railways has also called for a 24-hour strike on September 26.
Some unions have said that they will call off the September 24 strike if the government addresses their concerns beforehand. A heightened security presence and associated transport and business disruptions are expected during the work stoppages and near protest sites.
Individuals in Athens, and Greece more generally, are advised to monitor developments to the situation, anticipate public transportation disruptions, plan alternative modes of transportation, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
