The National Seamen’s Federation (PNO) has declared a 48-hour strike on Monday and Tuesday to protest against the government shipping policy.

The strike will keep ships docked from 6:00 on Monday morning to 06:00 a.m. on Wednesday.

>However, the ferry “Ariadni” with 1,004 refugees on board arrived early in the morning at Piraeus port.
In a press release, the PNO called on travellers to show understanding for the strike over what it called the destruction of the seamen’s pension fund (NAT), the reduction of permanent positions on passenger ships that endangered travelling and passengers, the reduction of pensions to extremely low levels, and the overall effort by the state to dismantle and destroy medical and social insurance for both retired and active sea personnel.
