Bus drivers of the Famagusta company called off a strike over pay-related grievances. Drivers started their action in protest at frequent delays and the risk of not receiving their 13th salary in time for Christmas. They also demanded the bus company to make its payment to the provident fund and other funds, which had not been made since May. The company said it was waiting for the transport ministry to give the money because even without a strike, the company did not have any fuel to run its service. In a statement workers called off the strike as a goodwill gesture, anticipating that the employer would pay their Christmas bonus before Christmas.
