On Thursday evening, April 28, the workers of COSCO held a new General Assembly at the docks of COSCO in Piraeus port, to discuss and evaluate the situation after the new labor accident.
The workers decided that their strike, which started yesterday, will continue till the employer accepts their rightful demands, so that no other worker will lose his life or be injured.
The workers decided
To organize daily General Assemblies, to evaluate the situation and decide the continuation of the Strike on a daily basis.
