Trade unions and civil organisations on Wednesday expressed their alarm and strong dissatisfaction with the seemingly ineffective measures taken thus far to address inflation and the cost of living.

Trade unions Peo, Sek, Deok and others were joined by the Cyprus Consumers Association in issuing an announcement where they took aim at the price of fuel, electricity, basic consumer goods, interest rates and other key price points.

They will hold a further meeting on September 27 when they will propose measures to achieve greater transparency in the market and protect the purchasing power of households.

They also called for a meeting to be held with the president and House president.
