Cyprus - Framework agreement in the public sector - February 28, 2017

The Minister of Finance and the Pancyprian Public Servants trade union signed on 7 February the framework agreement for the years 2017-2018. The minister said the agreement ensures the sustainability of public finances, while the union’s representative noted that the union is satisfied with the agreement which was the product of social dialogue. The agreement provides for the introduction of a mechanism through which the percentage increase in salaries will not exceed the rate of GDP growth and an improved method for calculating overtime. They also agreed to promote a bill that would indefinitely extend the freeze on new positions, while excluding the freezing of promotions.
