Athens, Oct 3 (EFE) .- The Greek media today maintain a new 24-hour strike, the second in a week, in protest of the stalemate in negotiations between the Government and the (Edoeap). p>
The strike declared by the Athens Journalists' Union began at 6.00 local time (03.00 GMT) and will run until the same time on Wednesday. p>
During these 24 hours there will be no news on public and private television and radio stations, or information in newspapers p>
In a statement, the union urged the government to approve "an immediate law" to ensure the survival of this fund and to employers not to systematically "provoke a stalemate in negotiations to keep workers uninsured permanently." p>
Edoeap, founded in 1968, finances the supplementary pension and medical insurance of employees of the media, and is currently supported exclusively through contributions from workers in the sector. p>
September last year, 20% of the advertising revenue from the media was going to go to the coffers of this box, a financing instrument that was eliminated by exigency of the creditors p>
The financial problems of this fund began in 2012, when it lost almost three quarters of its deposits because of the partial removal of the state debt Greek. p>
Under the legislation in force then, all pension and social security funds, as well as other public bodies, were obliged to keep their deposits in the Bank of Greece, which had transformed them into bonds of the Greek State.
