Cyprus -Civil servants keep 13th salary -April 27, 2012

President of the Republic, Christofias, promised public servants that the 13th salaries will continue to exist. The statement follows union outrage at Finance minister Shiraly’s declining to confirm or deny the preservation of civil servants’ 13th salary in a press conference on Wednesday 25 April. The Finance minister reacted that no plan even existed to cut the 13th salary in efforts to reduce the budget deficit to 2.5%.
