Thanks for this Bob. I'm pleased that it doesn't seem to effect the Zanti, Ithika and Lixouri-Argostoli ferries. It is becoming a much more regular occurrence and we had to cancel our trip to Patras back in May as there was yet another strike.

@Simon P

The strike in May had nothing to do with this one. In May it was a general strike, now it’s locally and aimed at 2 particular ferry companies because labour conditions on board their ships (according the union).
