Cyprus -Agreement on privatisation study -April 07, 2015

Agreement to call for a new tender for a study on the privatisation of state-owned power utility.

In an ongoing dispute (see the March Newsletter) on plans to privatise the state-owned power utility the energy ministry and the trade unions at the Electricity Authority of Cyprus agreed to call for a new tender for a study on the privatisation. Under the terms of the agreement, the study will take into account the company’s concerns as well as those of its trade unions. The deal came after the unions threatened to take strike action which would affect power production and supply. While the deal is in place, unions will take no strike action.
