Greek journalists are to hold a 24-hour nationwide strike on Thursday, called by the national journalists' union federation POESY and its individual member unions in order to demand the signature of collective labour agreements, protection of wages and preservation of jobs. The strike will begin at 6:00 a.m. on Thursday and end on 6:00 a.m. on Friday.

Among others, unions want municipal mass media to continue operating, regulation for the labour and social insurance rights of those employed in Internet media, and guarantees for the wages of journalists at the state broadcaster ERT, the ANA-MPA and DEPTHE.
