TAGS: Economy, Media

Greek television channel employees on Monday staged a demonstration outside Parliament, demanding job security and collective work contracts.

In solidarity with the workers, the unions representing Greek journalists and technicians held a five-hour work stoppage on Monday, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Television channel workers are also concerned about the prospects for their continued employment following a recent television license auction that reduced the number of permits allowed to broadcast to four.
