Museums, archaeological sites in Attica closed Thursday morning due to guards walkout

Archaeological sites in Attica are to be closed from 8 a.m. until 11 a.m. on Thursday, July 6th 2017, because guards will stage a work stoppage.

Guards at archaeological sites say the protest is 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 to the capital peak with the onset of the country’s summer tourism season.
