Of the twelve activists that were arrested during a shipbuilding workers’ strike, eleven have been released by court order, while the 12th received a suspended six month sentence. On 4 October 2012, workers at the Hellenic Shipyard in Skaramanga went on strike to demand the payment of wages that had not been paid for over a year. When clashes with the police occurred during the strike, twelve activists of the Panhellenic Metal Workers’ Federation (POEM) were arrested. On 5 May, after a court battle that involved international trade union support, the court ordered the activists released.
