The lifeguards branch of the Isotita trade union has called for an end to the “illegal” practice of long-term contracts being cancelled and subsequently renewed each year.

The representatives met with officials from the interior ministry on Friday to discuss the issues and demanded that a clear timeline for a path ahead to be announced.

Otherwise, they warned, they will be forced to take additional measures – hinting at potential strike action.

Other concerns expressed include a chronic issue of understaffing and a lack of incentives to attract more people into the profession.

They further called for a ‘safe beach services’ to be established, as outlined in the Salamis plan, which will vastly improve the quality and experience of visitors.
