Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The or­ga­niz­ers of the pres­ti­gious Athens and Ep­i­dau­rus fes­ti­vals called on work­ers yes­ter­day to call off their planned strike ac­tion to­day, say­ing they will meet their de­mand for over­time pay­ments.

Strike ac­tion by work­ers at Hel­lenic Fes­ti­val SA, which or­ga­nizes sum­mer cul­tural events in­clud­ing mu­sic dance and the­ater per­for­mances as well as vis­ual arts shows, has al­ready led to dis­rup­tions with the can­cel­la­tion on Satur­day of two per- for­mances in the cap­i­tal.

The fes­ti­val or­ga­niz­ers said in a writ­ten state­ment yes­ter­day that they are pre­pared to meet what they de­scribed as “the just de­mands” of work­ers, and urged them to ab­stain from strik­ing to­day.

Hel­lenic Fes­ti­val said that if the strike does go ahead then a new state­ment will be is­sued in­form­ing tick­ethold­ers of resched­uled events or how to get a re­fund if there are can­cel­la­tions.
