Cyprus -Bases workers against freeze of cost of living allowance -February 18, 2012

Workers within the Sovereign British Areas (SBA) of Akrotiri and Episkopi say they will strike over wages. Around 800 Cypriots currently work on the bases while an additional 400 work in companies within the SBA. The workers are complaining about the decision to impose a freeze on the Cost of Living Allowance (CoLA). SEK union head over SBA matters, Christos Tziambouras, said that the measure was part of a protracted two-year SBA effort to violate its commitments to workers.
