Cyprus -Bank employees threaten strike over loss of jobs and pensions -March 27, 2013

Employees of the popular Laiki bank have marched in protest of the bail-out deal that will lead to the layoff of some 2,500 people and loss of pension funds. In order to avoid a bank-run, the banks have kept their doors closed while its government negotiated a bail-out package with the IMF, ECB and European Council. Banks have already been closed for nearly two weeks but the workers' union has announced that unless their pensions are saved, they will start a strike when the banks are due to re-open.
