Cyprus -Indefinite strike in construction -January 29, 2013

Construction workers decided to continue their strike indefinitely, while the union picket line (from SEK, PEO and DEOK) became embroiled in a fight when a contractor tried to recruit strike-breakers to continue works on a hotel renovation site. The strike-breakers worked under conditions that were far below the terms and conditions in the agreed collective agreements. Workers criticised their employers for taking advantage of cheap foreign workers, essentially taking the industry back ten years and destroying the trade union movement.
