Taxi drivers on strike in Nicosia and Limassol

Nicosia taxi drivers staged a strike on Tuesday and parked their cabs outside the presidential palace to protest the loss of income that persists even after the lockdown was lifted.

Taxi drivers announced their work stoppage last week, protesting against “the reduced income of drivers which persists even after the relaxation of measures and the opening of airports”.

They were supported by their colleagues in Limassol who staged a four-hour work stoppage . The strike started at 7am.

The decision was taken at the general assembly on Monday evening at which various problems facing the industry were discussed.

As part of the protest Limassol taxi drivers gathered at the Limassol coast near the embankment at 9am.
