Employees of the Limassol bus company Emel threatened indefinite strike measures on Tuesday night after they rejected a deal formed during deliberations between unions Peo and Sek with Emel and the transport ministry.

The deal was rejected after 51 voted against it while 46 voted in favour.

According to union reps, the majority of Emel employees assert that the deal was unacceptable since it did not fully satisfy their demand for the restoration of all benefits conceded in 2014 due to the economic crisis.

Should this demand remain unmet, they said that they will proceed with an indefinite strike, which was scheduled to begin Tuesday but postponed pending the vote on the deal.
