General Strike announced June 13th 2013

General strike announced for Thursday - 13 June, 2013

Greece’s two largest public and private unions, GSEE and ADEDY have announced a 24-hour-strike for Thursday, 13th June.
The move was billed as a solidarity act in the wake of the government’s decision to close down national broadcaster ERT late on Tuesday and replace it with a new radio, television and Internet network.
Most likely Greek's air controllers will join in, so you might expect huge delays or cancellations of flights.

This is one to keep your eye on if you are travelling from Midnight Wednesday 12th of June through Thursday 13th 2013.
No details yet if Air Traffic is joining, but keep checking above link.
Keep hoping it will be all right.

Update.
Air traffic controllers will walk off the job from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday. Which is 1pm to 3pm UK time.
