Greece - Aviation workers suspend strike - June 30, 2016

Civil aviation workers suspended a five-day strike planned for 20-25 June to protest against the development of the country’s regional airports after receiving assurances from the government their jobs were not at risk. Civil aviation workers trade union OSYPA had called the strike after the governmental privatisation agency had published an invitation to hire an adviser to work out whether some 23 regional airports could be further developed. The union feared that such a move would result in job losses or hurt workers’ labour rights. After a series of meetings, OSYPA said the government and senior officials had shown ‘sensitivity’ over the issues that worried workers and were willing to discuss the airports’ future with unions.
