Ferries are expected to stay docked in ports across Greece on Thursday as seamen stage a 24-hour strike in protest at the latest round of cuts to pensions and job insecurity.

In a statement issued earlier this week, the Panhellenic Seamen’s Federation (PNO) condemned the “demolition” of its members’ pension fund, the “trivialization” of pensions, the reduction of auxiliary pensions, the increase in uninsured work and the violation of labor rights.

The strike is expected to begin at 12.01 a.m. on Thursday.
