Cyprus -Public sector workers protest against loss of shift allowance -December 12, 2013

Public sector workers working shifts have gathered outside the Parliament to protest against a draft budget that proposes to cut half of their shift allowance. The workers, employed amongst others in power stations, ports, police stations, hospitals and telecommunications, say they work longer and more anti-social hours to keep vital services running. A trade union said the workers had already accepted a six day working week, acknowledging the worrying situation in the country, but said that losing the shift work compensation is a bridge too far.
