No metro, ISAP or tram in capital on Wednesday after new strike is called
Workers on the Athens metro, ISAP electric railway and tram will be holding a 24-strike on Wednesday as part of ongoing action against government privatization plans, their union said on Tuesday.
Workers are also expected to rally in front of the TAIPED privatization agency at 8 a.m. on Wednesday in demand that the government scraps plans to sell the national rail network and its maintenance arm to private investors.
“Urban transport is the next activity that is being slated for surrender to voracious, profiteering private interests, regardless of the dramatic consequences of such choices on the Greek people,” the rail workers’ union said in an announcement on Tuesday.”
“These destructive plans will not pass. Public transport workers will resist,” it added.
