Refuse collection service workers in Paphos have decided to suspend their 24-hour strike scheduled for next Monday.

This decision came after receiving assurances from the mayor of Paphos Phaedonas Phaedonos during a meeting held on Wednesday with representatives of labour unions Sek, Peo and Deok.

According to a statement issued by the unions, “the mayor of Paphos assured that next Monday the municipal council will decide on the purchase of two garbage trucks as provided for in the municipality’s budget for 2023.”

The statement also added that Phaedonos gave clear instructions to increase the staffing of the service and that one-man teams will not be allowed anymore.
