The strike will be launched at 06:00 local time and end at 06:00 on November 13. During the stoppage period, vessels will not be able to berth, shift or sail from ports or terminals.

GSEE said that the strike is a response to the government’s planned changes to labour and insurance rights, pensions and retirement ages, as well as the privatisation of the country’s main ports, namely the Port of Thessaloniki and Piraeus Port.
