No metro, tram due to 24h strike of employees
Workers on Athens fixed-rail transport systems (tram, metro and Kifissia-Piraeus electric railway) will hold a 24-hour strike on Friday in protest against legislation that hands over the commercial exploitation of STASY fixed-rail transport stations and premises to the Athens urban transport organisation OASA.
According to fixed-rail transport unions, the change in the law will significantly reduce STASY’s revenues and cause massive and irreparable harm by depriving it of legal income that undermines its public-sector nature.
