Please keep this as factual as you can and if possible quote sources.
As long as the thread does not get too unwieldy we'll allow comment and opinion on the data in here but if it starts to get busy then comment and opinion will be deleted in favour of data so that information does not get hidden.

If you don't want your to have your comment possibly be deleted (after 3 or 4 days and purely for space/clarity reasons not because of the comment content) then please start a thread outside of this one.

ADEDY and GSEE plus other workers' unions have called a 24hr General Strike for Wednesday 30th May 2018

I'll keep a look out for info on Greek Air Traffic Controllers - they could possibly join the strike with 3/4 hour work stoppages, as they have in the past. No announcement from them at present.
