New strike at Limassol port

Workers at DP World Limassol, which manages the general cargo and cruise terminals at Limassol port, went back on strike on Wednesday after the company decided to fire four employees.

The new strike comes only a week after a collective agreement was signed between DP World and the workers’ union.

On Wednesday the union called the sacking of the four employees “an act of revenge” by the company.

The new strike is expected to cause serious problems in the daily operation of the city’s port, as it has already resulted in some issues when a merchant ship carrying iron could not unload its cargo on Wednesday.

A second merchant ship carrying frozen food and other perishable products is reportedly expected to arrive at the Limassol port in the early hours of Thursday.
