Greek Ferries Will Halt Sept. 26 as Seamen Join General Strike

Sept. 19 (Bloomberg) -- Greek ferry services from the country’s main port of Piraeus will stop on Sept. 26, when the seamen’s union takes part in a 24-hour general strike.

The Pan-Hellenic Seamen’s Federation said in an e-mailed statement today that the strike is aimed at restoring labor and social security rights affected by government austerity measures and at achieving a collective bargaining agreement.
