All National Theater performances cancelled today in protest
The labor action by actors and theater workers is taking place in protest of a draft government bill on payment in the industry. The Panhellenic Federation of Theaters said that under the proposed law, the, “renumeration of artists in the wider public sector and in private entities will not be determined by collective labor agreements but by the respective government.”
Other unions said the bill would downgrade their degrees and qualifications.
According to a National Theater announcement, those who have purchased tickets for the plays will either be able to change the dates or be reimbursed for price of their tickets.
Those that bought their tickets electronically will be informed via email regarding the necessary procedure. Tickets bought from sale points can changed or cancelled at the point of sale.
