Union bargaining on the cards for Greek taxi drivers?

Greek taxi drivers are continuing to strike over plans to privatise the sector.

04 August 2011

Greek taxi drivers may seek union bargaining in an effort to find a resolution with the government.

The workers are unhappy at plans to deregulate the sector and have staged a number of protests so far.

They fear that liberalising the industry will make it too competitive and therefore many workers will not be able to make a living from it.

Strike negotiations have taken place between the two parties, but an agreement has yet to be forged.

Individuals have surrounded the transport ministry as part of their protests, while access to holiday islands such as Crete has been severely restricted by their actions.

Union leader Thymios Lyberopoulos told AFP: "We will continue the mobilisation until the problem is solved."

There have been widespread demonstrations in Greece over the last couple of months after the country had to be bailed out for the second time by the EU and International Monetary Fund.
