Athens - Train travel throughout Greece will be disrupted on Monday after workers called rolling three-hour work stoppages, threatening to cause havoc during the busy tourist season.
Employees at the Hellenic Railways Organisation (OSE) said all domestic travel would face regular disruptions. Only trains travelling from outside of Greece or those headed to neighbouring countries would be allowed to travel.
The stoppages will also affect suburban services, which thousands of tourists rely on for travel from Athens' International Airport to the Greek capital.
Workers are demanding that extra staff be hired and that their health-care benefits be improved. (dpa)
