Taxi drivers' federation calls rolling 48-hour strikes in Greece until FridayTaxi drivers object to government plans to establish a higher minimum tax rate for the self-employed, regardless of their declared income

The Greek National Federation of Taxi Drivers POEIATA has invited its member unions to participate in rolling 48-hour strikes that will start at 5:00 on Monday, December 4, and continue until 5:00 on Friday, December 8. It also encouraged unions to go ahead with any other mobilization they deemed necessary, in addition to the two 48-hour strikes, ANA reports.
The Athens Taxi Drivers' Union (SATA) had already announced an escalation of labor action with a 48-hour strike on December 5-6, expressing "the rage and frustration of thousands of drivers over the government's tax-raiding attack". In an announcement on Sunday, SATA said that Athens taxis will be working on December 4.
