Employees of the Urban Transport Organisation of Thessaloniki (OASTH) announced on Tuesday their intentions to participate in a 24-hour strike declared by the General Confederation of Employees of Greece (GSEE) on Thursday, March 16, 2023.

On the day of the 24-hour strike, 50 buses operated by a skeleton staff will be in circulation, while the routes of the night line of the Airport (N1) and the special service for the disabled will operate as normal.
