Towage strike at Greek ports and terminals

greek flagInchcape Shipping Services (ISS) is advising of a towage strike in Greece today and tomorrow (22nd-23rd October) which will affect vessel movements at all Greek ports and terminals.

The action has been announced by the Crew Union of Towage Companies in Greece and will consist of daily four-hour stoppages from 0600-10:00 local time.

The Crew Union of Towage Companies in Greece has announced the action in protest of the planned privatisation of Piraeus and Thessaloniki ports.

During the two stoppage periods, vessels will not be able to berth or sail from ports or terminals. ISS Greece is working with its clients to minimise delays and will keep its clients updated.
