The federation of dockworkers (OMYLE) and the dockworker union of Piraeus have announced a series of actions scheduled for Thursday to protest government plans to privatize Greeks ports.
The dockworkers have announced a walkout effective from 11am and a demonstration at Karaiskaki Square, which will be followed by a march to the Ministry of Shipping. There, union representatives will meet the Ministry’s leadership.
According to OMYLE’s statement, the dockworkers oppose the planned “sell off of the port as a private property” because “the ports belong to the Greek people and not monopolistic groups”.
