Ships will remain docked on Wednesday and Thursday in all the ports of Greece because of a 48-hour strike that was announced by the Panhellenic Maritime Federation (PNO). They are demanding the drafting and signing of new collective labour agreements for 2023.

The Panhellenic Union of Tugboat Crews is also participating in the PNO's mobilisations, announcing rolling 48-hour strikes from 6:00 on Friday morning.

The sailors' strike will start at 6:00 on Wednesday (8/2) and end at 6:00 on Friday (10/2).

The seamen's unions are expected to hold a strike rally on Wednesday at 11:00, at the BlueStar ships, opposite the old Piraeus metro station.

Elsewhere, all the plays put on by the National Theatre that are scheduled for Wednesday, 8 February, are cancelled due to a strike declared by the Greek Actors Association.

According to a National Theatre announcement, those who have purchased tickets for the plays will either be able to change the dates or be reimbursed for price of their tickets. Those that bought their tickets electronically will be informed via email regarding the necessary procedure.

Tickets bought from sale points can changed or cancelled at the point of sale.
