Greek players threaten with a strike

The Greek Pro basketball players central organisation(ΠΣΑΚ) announced today that all the Greek professional players will be going on strike next weekend as it was proclaimed 3 months ago.

The orgnisation are trying to make a case for all players to be insured in the Greek Pro leagues (both A1 and A2) and they are also trying to make sure that all players receive the salaries they signed for in their contracts. The reassurements that measurements will be taken, have fallen to the deaf ears of the previous government in Greece. 

The political scene in Greece is going through a transition and it is very possible that nothing will be resolved until next weekend. In which case the Greek A1 and A2 leagues will not advance as scheduled and the lost games will have to be postponed on later dates throughout the season.
