Summary Box: Strikes halt Greek ferries
By The Associated Press
THE CAUSE: Organized to coincide with the Orthodox Easter this Sunday, the strike was called after The Panhellenic Seamen's Federation, PNO, failed to strike a deal with the government over cuts to its members' pension and health care plans.
HARDEST HIT: While larger islands have regular airline connections, the strike has cut many smaller islands off from the mainland.
