Construction workers to stage strike next month

Construction workers will go on a 24-hour strike next month as a warning to the building contractors that employ them to respect their collective agreement and restore their slashed salaries and benefits.

Trade unions Peo, Sek and Deok announced their construction members would go a 24-hour warning strike on February 13.

Construction workers had authorised their trade unions last month to announce strike measures when deemed necessary to defend their rights and convince employers to respect their collective agreement.

Unions said last month that construction workers were angry, but also determined to get the Federation of Cyprus Building Contractors (Oseok), to finally respect the agreements and invite its members to apply the collective agreement and restore their employees’ slashed salaries and benefits.
