Greeks plan mass protest strikes

Workers from power companies and the docks are to join the picket line.

21 June 2011

Industrial action is being planned in Greece as people show their dissatisfaction with the government.

As strike negotiations failed to find a resolution to the problem, workers are to take to the picket line, as the country seeks a second financial bail-out from the European community.

According to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), there will be disruptions to power supplies both yesterday (June 20th) and today.

Trade unions will be taking to Syntagma Square in the capital city Athens on June 21st to demonstrate against the country's leaders.

Travel problems are also expected, with the dock workers striking on June 24th, with all port services expected to be affected by this move.

People who are travelling to the nation are advised by the FCO to get in contact with their operator before setting off.

Fears continue that if the Greek economy does collapse, it could lead to another worldwide recession.
