Power company staff ease measures

Striking electricity company (EAC) workers agreed to increase production on Friday after an appeal from the board and assurances that their demands would be discussed in parliament.

Their measures, which started at 7am, caused inconvenience and sparked outrage among consumers.

Normal service was restored at 10.30am.

EAC workers are on a 12-hour strike to protest government plan to privatise the organisation.

State telecoms CyTA and ports authority staff are on a 24-hour strike for the same reason.

An EAC union rep said they agreed to increase production after House Finance Committed chairman Nicolas Papadopoulos informed them that the matter would be discussed in parliament.
