Athens’ metro system and trams, including the Piraeus-Kifissia overground electric railway, will not be running from 21:00 until the end of the shift on Tuesday night, due to a strike by the workforce.

Metro, ISAP railway and tram workers said the warning strike was being held to highlight the “mismanagement of public transport and even negligence on the part of those responsible for the current state of fixed-rail public transport today.”

The workers object to a new restructuring plan included in a recently passed law, saying it lacked any strategic design or even quantitative data or targets indicating its expected benefits, while the envisaged spending and staff cuts from mergers would likely create needs that would then have to be covered by outside contractors.

The Proastiakos suburban railway, which also serves the Athens airport, will be running as usual.
