Limassol marina workers start industrial action

CONSTRUCTION workers at the Limassol marina went on strike today to complain about a breach of contract from their employers.

According to the striking workers, parts of the project have been given out to sub-contractors who are mainly using cheap foreign labour for the job.

The secretary of the Limassol branch of the Pancyprian Federation of Labour (PEO) trade union said that the duration of the strikes all depends on the stance taken by the employers, adding that by breaching the terms of employment, Cypriot workers remain unemployed.

Meanwhile, the secretary-general of the Cyprus Workers’ Confederation (SEK) union’s construction branch said that the company is employing fifty people for all of the work instead of the two hundred it was supposed to hire and that the rest is under sub-contract.

  1. Perhaps we should follow their fine example and go on strike, against corrupt lawyers, developers, banks, and refuse to pay our bills – or have any communication with them. Do what they do to me, and you ignore you and your telephone calls, letters. In short do nothing.

  2. @James – How about the foreign cabaret girls taking jobs :-)

    Something else Cyprus (doesn’t) boast about now it’s in the EU

    umm, is there a union for this industry..LOL

  3. Sack them all. It’s not like they are in a rush to finish. Only 20% sold or ‘reserved’ so far.

  4. I wonder what the union views are on housemaids from outside the EU taking Cypriot jobs ?
