State museums and sites to remain closed until March 19

The decision to continue a series of 24-hour rolling strikes was reached by public servants during a meeting on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, unionists were expected to evaluate the new reform plan and participate in a rally outside the National Archaeological Museum in central Athens at 11.30 a.m.
