A HOTEL staff trade union in the Athens area today called its members out on strike on August 4 to demand higher wages, warning it planned to push on
with its action during Greece's Olympic Games, its president said.
The SYXEAP has refused to accept a deal, reached through arbitration, for a 6 per cent wage increase, even though the deal has been approved by the
nationwide confederation of hotel employees.
Isn't this type of thing called 'the gravy train'. And Gov'ts say tourism input more than out-weighs
the cost of hosting the Olympics.
