Union decides to maintain media blackout over Greek public broadcaster's shutdown until Monday

A strike in the Greek media that began on Wednesday, the day after public broadcaster ERT was shut down, is set to continue until early Tuesday.

The ESIEA journalistsí union decided on Thursday night that TV, radio, print and online media should remain on strike in a show of solidarity for some 2,700 ERT employees that are set to lose their jobs.

The blackout is set to last until the early hours of Tuesday. Only media that are carrying ERTís signal, showing programs produced by the broadcastersí staff in defiance of the government shutdown, are exempt from the strike.

Coalition leaders are due to meet at 6 p.m. on Monday to discuss their differences over the way ERT should be handled. , Thursday June 13, 2013 (23:51)
