There are reports of yet another 48 hour strike in Greece starting January 27th. This is further to the strike last week. The action is expected to impact routes of domestic and local ferries and commercial vessels calling at Piraeus, Aspropyrgos, Eleusis, Pachi and Megara ports for cargo discharging. The strike announced by the Hellenic Crew Union and the Towage and Salvage Crew Union of Piraeus is scheduled to start at 06:00 local time on January 27th and end at 06:00 on January 29th. Vessels will not be able to berth, shift or sail from the affected ports. Tug boats in Thessaloniki are expected to work normally on these dates as these crew will not be attending this strike.
