CONSTRUCTION industry workers will start a two-day strike tomorrow to protest what they say is the refusal of employers to enter into a dialogue on renewing collective agreements.
They also claim that certain employers have expressed a view that any collective agreement cannot be signed until after a possible Troika memorandum has been signed.
Building contractors called on their colleagues to join the protest, saying that the current level of unemployment in the construction industry is due to the financial crisis and the employment of illegal immigrants.
Ruling party AKEL (Communist) expressed their solidarity with the strike welcoming the unity of the labour movement on the issue.
Following the strike the construction industry unions will meet to decide their next move, which may include indefinite strike action.
