Cyprus - Workers on strike at desalination plant - June 30, 2017

Workers at the Episkopi desalination plant in Limassol will continue their indefinitely strike until their employer honours what had been agreed in 2016. The strike began on 30 May 2017 after negotiations between the workers’ unions – PEO and SEK – and the company operating the desalination plant on employment terms fell through. Some 20 workers at the Episkopi desalination plant had also gone on strike last year after they had said that their employer, Limassol Water Co Ltd, refused to grant them a collective agreement to safeguard their rights. The strike, that lasted a week, ended after an agreement was achieved with mediation by the labour ministry. But the unions said that the company has not honour that agreement.
