Cyprus -Workers protest against privatisations -June 24, 2015

Trade unions are not satisfied with the government’s commitment that work positions at CyTA are safe.

The trade unions at the semi-state Cyprus Telecommunications Authority (CyTA) started the first in a series of protests against the government’s denationalisation programme. Workers held signs criticising the philosophy of privatisations. The trade unions are not satisfied with the government’s commitment that work positions at CyTA are safe even in the event of privatisation and say that whether an employee will remain a public employee is not the only important thing. Also important are the rest of his career, and prospects of promotion.
