Journalists, producers and technical staff decided on Wednesday to continue their strike for another 24 hours in protest against planned changes to the press laws in Greece.
State-run and most private-run media in the country have halted all news dissemination except for developments regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.
Unions representing the media workers said the planned changes are a great blow to the press workers as they “would pave the way for mass layoffs.”
It was underlined that the proposed law, which aims to reduce the requirement of 400 employees at television channels to 280, includes more flexible articles against journalists regarding their employment contracts.
