Greece - Public transport strike scheduled for September - August 30, 2010

Public transport workers, including those of the national railway system (OSE), have planned a five hours’ strike to be staged during the first ten days of September. The transport workers want to protest against privatisations, firings, wage cuts and the trimming of benefits. Union representatives will hold a joint press conference in Thessaloniki during the International Fair in mid-September as to explain their stance, which is likely to include further protest action.
