The Greek Shipowners Association for Passenger Ships (SEEN) called for the Pan-Hellenic Seamen’s Federation (PNO) to reconsider its 24-hour strike announced for 3 September, as it is expected to cause severe disruption to ferry transport in Greece.

In a letter to PNO, the association underlined that some 180,000 passengers, 50,000 vehicles and 3,000 trucks are expected to travel that Monday.
