A 48-hour strike by workers at Piers II and III at the container terminal within the Piraeus Port Authority (PPA) has been suspended, according one of the unions, ENEDΕΡ, behind the industrial action. The same group cited a “written commitment by management for the commencement of deliberations regarding the issues we have made known.”

The specific union is pressing for pay hikes, changing contacts into full-time employment status, as well as changes in the daily work schedule.

Conversely, media reports said the terminal’s operator, Cosco, had twice persuaded a first instance court to declare the strike illegal, although ENEDEP’s attorneys delayed application of the verdict with an appeal that was set to be heard on Dec. 7.

Additionally, port watchers said the specific union, which is backed by the communist party-affiliated PAME labor grouping, is one of the smallest in terms of membership, with only 475 names on its rolls – and out of roughly 2,000 workers at the terminal.

The port of Piraeus is the largest and busiest in Greece, and among the biggest container transport hubs in Europe.
