Cyprus - Limassol Port workers go on strike - March 31, 2016

Unions representing striking workers at Limassol Port will be meeting to discuss how to proceed, after the management of the company agreed to delay its discussion on port privatisation. However, at least one union, SIDIKEK-PEO, has indicated its members will continue their work stoppage. Port workers in Limassol have declared an indefinite strike in protest over privatisation plans (see earlier Newsletters). The transport ministry believes there is no basis for the strike and stated that in a worst case scenario, some port employees could be assigned different duties within the civil service.
