Public transport employees are expected to decide on possible strike actions and taxi owners are expected to declare their position on the upcoming announcement of the regulations to liberalize their occupation.

The week starting on Monday will be critical for the public transport in Attica, as workers are on alert and do not preclude a new round of strike actions related to the new plan for the companies and the negotiations for new collective agreement as the law on public transport recovery provides.

Tomorrow, Monday, the employees in urban buses and trolleys will make out their position and on Wednesday, the employees in the metro, trams, trains, which with the exception of trams began to protest with a 24-hour strike last Thursday, will take their appropriate decisions too.

Taxi owners are ready for action too, anticipating the regulations for the liberalization of their occupation, which the Minister of Infrastructure, Transport and Networks Yannis Rangousis has to announce during the week.

The bill is almost ready and it is expected to be debated in the Council of Ministers, which will meet next Wednesday, when the green light for the start of public debate will formally be given.

Taxi owners unsettled with the head of the Ministry of Transport are awaiting the statements to determine their position, although, according to the information, they are preparing for dynamic events during the visit of the Prime Minister and the government staff in Thessaloniki on the occasion of the International Exhibition in Thessaloniki.
