Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Ar­chae­o­log­i­cal sites in At­tica will not open un­til 11 a.m. on Thursday as guards stage a walk­out over a pay dis­pute and to de­mand bet­ter work­ing con­di­tions. In a state­ment, the union rep­re­sent­ing guards at an­cient sites and mu­se­ums ex­pressed their con­cerns about “tragic short­falls” in staff and called for new hir­ings to en­sure the smooth run­ning of an­cient sites. The walk­out comes as ar­rivals in the cap­i­tal peak with the on­set of the coun­try’s mid­sum­mer tourism sea­son.
