Cyprus -Planned privatisations contested -December 04, 2013

Strike actions could intensify if the government’s position on the privatisation of semi-state organisations (SGOs) does not change. This was a message delivered by unionists and employees from the Cyprus Port Authority (CPA) and telecoms company CyTA, who carried out separate strikes. Strikers gathered outside Limassol port’s entrance to protest against the plans which would see the privatisation of SGOs as part of the island’s bailout programme. Also employees at the Electricity Authority (EAC) head offices, regional offices and at power stations stopped working as a way of expressing their opposition to the proposed privatisation of the organisation.
