Athens will be without metro service on Thursday due a twenty-four hour strike called by Athens Metro Association of Workers.
Metro workers complain about the constant undermining of infrastructure and the targeting of individual colleagues such as ticket inspectors. According to their union, current events may lead to privatization of the service and a subsequent increase in ticket price.
Events include the recent publication on an anti-establishment website of the names of 125 ticket inspectors. The list was accompanied by a message encouraging anyone who recognizes an inspector to attack them. “If you recognize someone [from the list] in your neighborhood or your apartment block, treat them accordingly,” it read.
