Athens Concert Hall modifies Thursday events calender due to strike action by staff
The Athens ‘Megaron’ Concert Hall on Wednesday announced changes to its programme of events on Thursday, due to work stoppages announced by its staff union.
A lecture on “Did the Ptolemies have a steam-powered pump?” by Prof. Theodosis Tasios has been postponed until Tuesday, February 2 at 19:00. Entry will be free of charge with the distribution of tickets starting at 17:30 on the same day.
A performance of the play “The Marriage of Figaro” has been postponed until 21:00 and a planned performance of the play “Around the World in 80 Days” has been cancelled.
The Megaron staff union SEOMMA decided to hold two three-hour work stoppages on Thursday, from 10:00-13:00 and 18:00-21:00 in protest about delays in payment of wages and uncertainty and insecurity about the future of the concert hall and their jobs, warning that this was the start of a “new series of mobilisations”.
