UCy hourly-paid staff to strike

Hourly-paid staff at the University of Cyprus have called a two-hour strike on Friday from 10am until noon to demand the establishment of a provident fund.

In a statement they said the strike was justified because their request for the provident fund has been repeatedly ignored by the university, and despite promises that a fund would be set up.

They said they had postponed strike action planned last September for the same reason but were talked out of it with the promise of a dialogue with the ultimate promise of the establishment of a provident fund.

“Since then no meeting or consultation has taken place,” the statement said, adding that some of the hourly-paid staff had been employed at UCy for more than 20 years and that a number who had recently retired had received no retirement benefit.
