Workers in the tourism and catering sector began a 48-hour strike on Tuesday morning, and have scheduled a protest rally later in the day at central Korai Square, as Skaramangas shipyard workers gathered in front of the Finance Ministry in Syntagma Square to hold their own march.

The union representing workers in tourist and catering services is demanding the re-introduction of a collective labor agreement for the sector as well as a higher minimum wage.

Meanwhile, workers from the Skaramangas shipyard, who have been working on rotation for several months, are demanding measures to boost business at the country's biggest, and ailing, shipyard.
