Dockworkers in Limassol port will strike for two hours on Friday morning, “over technical and contractual problems,” their spokesman said.
The strike will start at 8 am.
They claim that their employers, the Cyprus Shipping Association which represents shipping agents, and Transport Ministry have ignored their problems.
“The non-renewal of our collective agreement is a matter that we have been discussing since November 2017” the dockworkers’ spokesman said.
According to information, the dockworkers do not agree with a compromise proposal submitted by the Ministry and the trade unions.
They stress that they do not want to create a hostile environment and they are ready to come to the negotiating table. Through their two-hour strike, they wish to exert pressure and show that they want dialogue with the Ministry.
