Cyprus - Limassol bus drivers suspend strike - February 29, 2016

The trade union-members of Limassol public bus company EMEL decided to call off their planned 24-hour strike. The strike was suspended after promises of the labour ministry that immediate efforts would begin to resolve the failure to restore workers’ original employment agreements. Workers are seeking the honouring of a 2014 agreement made with EMEL, in which they had accepted temporary cutbacks in their salaries and benefits, on condition these would be reinstated as of 2016, something which had yet to be implemented.
