    A labor dispute kept tourists locked out of Pompeii for several hours Monday, the latest in a spate of unplanned, partial closures at the ancient Roman ruins.
    Frustrated tourists who wanted to enter the sprawling ruins in early morning were forced to wait for a union assembly to finish before the gates were unlocked — hours after the scheduled opening.
    The dispute over work schedules and back pay began last week, keeping thousands of visitors shut out during union meetings.
