Colleagues, Colleagues,
In the barren environment created by the Government for the satisfaction of our demands, we vigorously continue our mobilizations.
We already know how 50 theaters in Athens, Thessaloniki, Larissa and Patras (and thus almost double the number of performances hosted there) participate in the strike, while in the audiovisual sector 15 series filming will stop for two days.
Since yesterday, all drama school teachers have been participating in the strike following the participation announced yesterday by the Association of Higher Private Schools”.
