ATHENS, Greece — Greek island ferries are tied up in port for a day while Athens public transport, hospitals and state schools face disruptions as unions strike against proposed
Tuesday’s 24-hour strike by the civil servants’ umbrella union and other
Seamen’s unions have gone ahead with their strike, affecting the ferry system, despite a court ruling it illegal.
Unions oppose parts of the proposed legislation that will make it harder for them to call strikes, will allow workers to vote remotely on industrial action without attending meetings and permit changes in some collective work agreements.
Unions are planning demonstrations later Tuesday in central Athens.
