ATHENS – Greek air traffic controllers said they will strike on Oct. 4-5 to protest airport charges, although courts have blocked previous attempts for them to walk off the job because of safety reasons.

The union representing the controllers called for the protest action after a ministerial decision gave the Public Debt Management Agency (PDMA) access to airport fees.

The air traffic controllers said in a statement that this money was meant to be used to improve air travel and not to cover budget shortfalls.

Greece is coming off a second straight record-breaking tourist summer and year and government officials had pleaded before for workers to show visitors Greek hospitality after previous years were rife with strikes and protests over austerity.
