Tied up the ships will remain tomorrow Wednesday and the day after Thursday in all ports of the country, due to a 48-hour nationwide strike, announced by the Panhellenic Maritime Federation (PNO) for all categories of ships.

Employees demand training and signing of new Collective Labor Agreements for 2023, while the Panhellenic Union of Tugboat Crews also participates in the mobilizations of PNO, which has also announced repeated 48-hour strikes from 6 am on Friday.

The mobilizations of the sailors will start at 6 am. on Wednesday (8/2) and are expected to expire at 6 am. of Friday (10/2).

The seamen’s confederation speaks of a complete reluctance and refusal of the employer side to enter into negotiations for the drawing up and signing of new Collective Labor Agreements for 2023, despite the fact that they had been sent on time – a quarter of a year ago – fully founded, with simultaneous notification to the relevant ministries, the financial, institutional and sectoral requests of the maritime sector.

also asks for the fight against undeclared uninsured work and the establishment of a permanent system of substantial financial support and protection for unemployed seafarers. It requests an increase in the projected monthly unemployment allowance to 650 euros for singles and 850 euros for married people, with an additional 150 euros for each dependent person, so that the real needs of seafarers are met, but also free medical care for them and their families.

The shipping unions are expected to hold a strike rally tomorrow, at 11 am on the BlueStar ships, opposite the electric railway station in Piraeus.
