Cyprus -Four hour strike by CY pilots and still no solution -April 4, 2012

CYPRUS Airways (CY) pilots held a four-hour work stoppage, affecting four flights to and from London and Paris. The pilots planned to sue the CY board of directors for continuing to cut 9.0 % of their salaries this year, when they had only agreed to the measure in 2011. The pilots’ union’s (PASYPI) criticized the one-sided decision to continue to illegally cut salaries, even though the labour ministry’s mediators service had instructed the two sides to consult to renew the collective agreements until February 23, when whatever was cut illegally for 2012 should be paid back retroactively.
