Today, Monday February 20th 2017, the archaeological sites and museums across the country will remain closed due to the 24-hour strike decided by the antiquities’ guards. Among other claims is the immediate hiring of 200 permanent antiquities’ guards the Prime Minister had announced.
For her part, Minister of Culture and Sports Ms. Lydia Koniordou called the Panhellenic Union of Antiquities’ Guards to suspend the warning strike, since, as pointed out by the announcement of the Ministry, it is known that both the museums and archaeological sites operate undermanned and appropriate action is taken by all the ministries to proclaim these 200 working positions.
