The Greek seamen’s union, the PNO, called a 24hr strike of its dockworkers for Wednesday, April 18, from 06:00 on Wednesday to 06:00 on Thursday.
However, the union has decided to extend their strike for a further 24 hours, leaving the country’s mainland and islands without ferry services until Friday morning.
We are pleased to confirm that ferry services to and from the island of Thassos will run as normal on Thursday.
The strike is the latest action to be taken over the continuing dispute with the government over manning levels in the industry.
Ferry services between the islands and mainland will be affected, hitting transport links as the Spring tourism season takes off.
