Wheel saga.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Work to dis­man­tle the Fer­ris wheel in Syn­tagma Square, cen­tral Athens, came to a halt on Tues­day af­ter­noon af­ter la­bor in­spec­tors said that the crew that had un­der­taken the pro­ject was vi­o­lat­ing la­bor leg­is­la­tion. Work only stopped af­ter po­lice ar­rived, as the crew re­fused to co­op­er­ate with the la­bor in­spec­tors at the site. The City of Athens had or­dered the re­moval of the con­tro­ver­sial wheel, which was in­stalled in De­cem­ber for the Christ­mas hol­i­day sea­son but never started op­er­at­ing due to safety con­cerns. Ac­cord­ing to the Greek La­bor In­spec­torate (SEPE), the law stip­u­lates that the com­pany that un­der­took to re­move the wheel must co­op­er­ate and pro­vide the re­quested in­for­ma­tion to the in­spec­tors when asked.
