Cyprus -Collective agreement in hotel industry reduces pay -July 22, 2013

The 16,000 employees working in the hotel industry have a new collective agreement after the ministry of labour and social insurance presented a mediation proposal for the sector. The crisis-time collective agreement, which will be valid until the end of 2015, freezes pay and cost of living allowances at the current level and aims for labour cost reductions.  Rates of pay on public holidays will be reduced to double, instead of the current triple rate; the Sunday rate will remain unchanged at 1.5 but workers will be guaranteed two Sundays per month off. Easter bonuses are reduced from 30% to 7.5% and employer contributions to provident funds from 10% to 3%. Critics signal that 4,000 immigrants working in the sector will not be covered by the agreement.
