Workers at the Eiffel Tower management company (Sete) continue their strike today, for the fourth consecutive day, as the unions told AFP.

Workers at Paris’ most famous landmark are protesting their employer’s financial management of the monument.

The dispute between management and unions, which already led to the closure of the “Iron Lady” (as the Tower is called) on December 27, the day of the 100th anniversary of the death of the engineer who built the iconic monument of Paris, is developing into through the winter school holidays and five months before the Olympic Games (July 26 – August 11) that the French capital will host.

The day before yesterday, Tuesday, the negotiations were suddenly interrupted as the request of the two unions to obtain an interlocutor at the town hall, a supermajority shareholder (99%) of Sete, was not heard.

The representatives of around 360 workers at Pyrgos are also asking to be able to access the amendment to the public service contract which runs until 2030, the subject of their main grievance.

The amendment, which calls for a 20% increase in ticket prices, must be ratified in May by the Paris Council.

The two points of contention are the consideration Sete paid to the town hall and the works budget for the rest of the contract.
