Cyprus -Construction strike ends in renewal of collective agreement -February 14, 2013

Employers and trade unions reached an agreement in principle on the collective agreements in construction, bringing the indefinite building strike to an end after nearly three weeks. The two sides accepted proposals put forward by the Labour Minister, which provide for the collective agreement to run until 30 June 2014. Weekly salaries will remain the same with craftsmen, labourers and semi-skilled workers receiving €440, €380 and €403 respectively. Both sides also agreed to introduce licences to all those looking to work in the construction industry, with a certificate confirming their qualifications.
