UPDATE: Greek ATC Strike Cancelled
Air traffic controllers in Greece have called off a series of 24 hour strikes they had announced for this week. The industrial action was called off after a meeting with Greece’s transport minister. The strikes were scheduled for October 9th-10th and 12th-13th October.
Greek Air Traffic Controllers Call 24-Hour Strikes Starting Oct. 9
Greek air traffic controllers plan to walk off the job over four days from Oct. 9, grounding flights in protest at changes to their job descriptions under reforms pursued by the country’s foreign creditors. Their union said on Wednesday they would stage 24-hour strikes on Oct. 9, 10, and Oct 12-13 inclusive. All but emergency and search-and-rescue flights along with flights through the Athens Flight Information region would be suspended.
