Greek Festival Staff Protest Lack of Work Contract Renewal with Rally

December 21, 2021

ATHENS – Employees of the Athens and Epidaurus Festival are staging a rally outside the Ministry of Culture at 12:00 on Tuesday, to protest the non-renewal of their contracts.

In a statement, the employees’ union said that they would also hold a work stoppage the same day, at 11:00-15:00, to call for the renewal of 43 contracts to December 31, 2022. They also demanded that short-term contracts be made permanent for positions that fill key and needed positions.

Some of the staff have been working at the Festival for as long as 20 years on repeated renewals of contracts instead of permanent ones, something that must end, they said.
