Strikes to halt national, suburban railway services Monday through Wednesday
Service on Greece’s national and suburban (Proastiakos) railways was expected to be suspended Monday through Wednesday, as unions have called for continuous rolling strikes following a decision by the country’s privatization fund, TAIPED, to accept a bid for the sale of a 100 percent stake in Greek railway operator Trainose.
A 45-million euro bid by Italy’s state-owned Gruppo Ferrovie State Italiane for the sale was accepted by TAIPED’s board last week.
Commercial train services were expected to be suspended until Thursday. Meanwhile, unions were set to convene again on Thursday and decide on further action.
