A public sector strike announced for September 19 was called off after assurances were made by President Anastasiades. The trade union of public sector employees (PASYDY) had announced a strike after statements by the finance ministry on upcoming cuts in salaries and the taxation of a one off bonus allocated to public sector employees upon their retirement. The strike was called off after the President promised that the government has no intention of taxing the retirement bonuses.
