Acropolis to Close on Feb 12 Due to Staff Walk Out
Employees of the Acropolis in Athens are staging a walkout on Friday, February 12, from 12 noon to closing time.
The employees have announced they are walking off the job in support of the antiquities sites guards whose temporary contracts have ended. The guards have remained on the job as they are contesting their dismissals in the courts.
The workers union is calling on the Culture Ministry to immediately proceed to all necessary actions to rehire the contract workers.
Temporary court decisions have allowed many contract workers in the public sector to remain in place beyond the end of their agreements.
