From today, the Eiffel Tower welcomes visitors again after a six-day staff strike.



The protest was against the way one of the symbols of Paris is managed and maintained, BNT reported.

The municipal operating company and the unions have reached an agreement on reviews every six months of the economic model of management, the course of investments and the amount of revenues.

The labor dispute has resulted in the loss of 100 thousand visits.

Unions claimed the municipal operating company was underestimating the cost of planned maintenance and repair work on the tower ahead of the Olympics in July.

Metal from the construction will feature in the winners' medals.

The unions and the administration have agreed that 380 million euros will be invested until 2031 for the storage and maintenance of the Eiffel Tower.
