  • [01] Protesting culture ministry contract employees stage blockade of ministry entrance

    Protesting culture and tourism ministry contract employees and extraordinary personnel continued their mobilisations on Monday, moving on from last week's blocking of the Acropolis to a sit-in at the ministry entrance in Athens.

    ANA-MPA/Ministry contract employees' union leader Nikos Hasomeris charged that the minister and deputy ministers, although having called the union to dialogue, "are absent, and we are being referred to an administrative employee, who is asking us what our demands are, although they have been made known for several days".

    "We will discuss only with the ministry leadership," Hasomeris said, adding that the contract employees will carry on with their mobilisations.

    "We have shown our good will, but from here on they will be on the receiving end," he added.

    The contract employees are demanding payment of 22 months in back pay, extension of their close-ended contracts and filling in organic vacancies at the ministry with tenured personnel.

    They also called on contract workers to take part in the 24-hour strike called by the Association of Greek Archaeologists on Thursday.

    [02] Restaurateurs reinstate ashtrays

    ANA-MPa/Ashtrays were "reinstated" in restaurants and other related establishments on Monday, following a sector decision to defy the ban on smoking in enclosed spaces.

    A Federation of Restaurant and Related Professions board took the decision during a general assembly of the sector, citing serious financial impact of the smoking ban on the Federation's member establishments.

    The Federation, as well as the General Confederation of Light Industry and Commerce of Greece (GSEBEE), have called for a transition period for implementation of the relevant legislation.

    The two federations stress in announcements that they are not contesting the substance of the law, but consider a transition period to be of urgent necessity, as the viability of dining and recreation establishments is threatened given the economic crisis, which has already had negative repercussions for the branch.
