Cyprus - Strike of Port pilots averted after deal - January 31, 2016

A strike scheduled in Limassol’s port on 18 January was suspended after an agreement, which leaves the chance for pilots to have a stake – indirectly – in the privatisation process of the port’s operations and thus ensure the future of the current employees, was clinched with the transport ministry. The trade unions said the deal allowed for pilots to communicate with the potential investor and possibly strike a deal, a request that had so far been rejected by the state. However, the request that the trade unions be outright responsible for the operations in a bid to ensure the workers future rights was not approved.
