Cyprus -Bank workers strike -April 05, 2013

Bank workers organised a two-hour strike on 4 April because the pensions of the employees have not been protected in the bail-out process. As reported last month, the workers at the now-defunct Laiki Bank have been affected worse than most. Many borrowed money to buy shares in the bank - now worthless - and fear losing both their jobs and their pensions.
