Limassol taxi strike

Taxi drivers will stop work for two hours on Wednesday

Limassol taxi drivers announced on Wednesday they would go on a strike on Saturday over the problems within the sector which they said the government had repeatedly failed to address.

They said they would strike between 5pm and 8pm outside the taxi ranks of the old port and the Limassol marina over the standing problems faced by urban taxi owners and drivers including unlicensed drivers, inadequate numbers of taxi ranks and road tax licences.

During the strike, President Nicos Anastasiades will be attending the inauguration ceremony of the redevelopment project at the old Limassol port.

“When in 2014 we had announced a protest at the opening of the Limassol marina, the President of the Republic …. prevented this by promising to find solutions, but since then we have not seen any results,” a statement from the taxi drivers said.
