Cyprus - Port pilots on strike - January 31, 2017

The Limassol port pilots went on strike after they were told that they had to train six Dutch colleagues of theirs, who are to assume duties after the private investors take over operations at the end of January 2017. The work stoppage ended as a sign of goodwill ahead of the pilots’ scheduled meeting with the head of the House transport committee over this conflict. The Limassol port pilots had staged another strike on July 2016 to protest the intention of Dubai Ports to employ non-Cypriot pilots. The pilots expect that Dubai Ports will hire them after it takes over from the Cyprus Ports Authority.
