Cyprus - 24-hour strike at Limassol port - December 31, 2018

After a two-hour work stoppage earlier this month, port workers went on a 24-hour strike to protest the long delay in reaching an agreement with their employers over renewal of their collective agreement that expired 31 December 2017. Furthermore, unions claim that port managers misinterpret salary provisions as they were agreed in the current collective agreement and also fail to hire workers in line with the current collective agreement. The 24-hour strike was called out by workers in response to a decision of the dispute resolution council that declared that the announced strike would be illegal.
