Cyprus -Port workers warning strike -May 03, 2013

Port workers staged a 24-hour warning strike over a proposal to cut their benefits. The porters reject a mediating proposal tabled by the labour ministry because it affected basic benefits like their provident fund, bonuses and other advantages. The proposal provided for a freeze in wages, a cut in the employer’s contribution to the provident fund from 7% to 1%, cutting 14th salaries (Easter bonus) by half and reducing overtime pay from triple to double the hourly rate.
