Paphos bus drivers strike over salary delay

Paphos public bus drivers held a three-hour strike on Friday to protest the delay in receiving their salaries.
The 11am to 2pm strike action was accompanied by warnings that they will go on an indefinite strike if they were not paid by Monday.
The strike mainly affected pupils but also foreigners and locals using the public transport system.
It followed similar action for the same reason at the end of last month.
Industrial action has become a frequent issue since the state set up the transport system in its current form around eight years ago.
A total €3.5 million has been overpaid to the Paphos company and the two sides have agreed that this amount must be deducted from the state’s contribution to Osypa going forward.
While acknowledging the overpayments and the need for the money to be withheld, the company argued that it cannot be effected in the winter period, when use of public transport is less than in the summer months when tourists use the buses.
