Greece - Court declares aviation strike illegal - December 28, 2010

A 48-hour strike called by the civil aviation staff union OSYPA on December 29 and 30 has been declared illegal by an Athens first-instance court, after management at the Civil Aviation Service (CAS) filed to have the strike declared illegal. Members of OSYPA said in response to the ruling that they would resort to other forms of labour mobilisation in protest against the government's plans for mandatory transfers of some 500 mechanics and pilots of the former Olympic Airways currently employed by the CAS.
