ATHENS Oct 8 Greek air traffic controllers on
Saturday called off a planned strike after a "constructive"
meeting with the transport minister, cancelling labour action
that would have grounded flights for four days.
Their union had said earlier in the week that it would stage
24-hour strikes on Oct. 9, 10 and Oct. 12 and 13 in protest at
changes to their job descriptions under reforms pursued by the
country's foreign creditors.
The strikes would have coincided with the submission of
draft legislation to parliament changing the structure of the
civil aviation department.
