Museum, archaeological site guards to hold 4-hour work stoppage Saturday

Guards at Greece’s museums and archaeological sites will hold a four-hour work stoppage on Saturday over pay and staffing demands.

The work stoppage will start at 8:00 am, their union group PEYFA said in a statement on Tuesday. Among their demands is that the government goes ahead with the hiring of an additional 200 permanent guards, as previously promised by Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, PEYFA said.
