The Eiffel Tower was closed to visitors yesterday after workers at Paris's most-visited tourist site began an open-ended strike to protest against bullying management techniques, according to union leaders.

The workers at the company that operates the site were fighting against "psychological pressure, stress-inducing managerial policies and a management that is deaf to the complaints of its employees," a statement said.

A spokeswoman for the tower said a supervisor had been suspended as a precautionary measure.
